Document Description
On April 19, 2011 there was a major break in a segment of Pacific Gas & Electric Company's Bear RiverCanal. Water supplies to the Placer County Water Agency and its customers remain severly limited due to the canal failure. Due to the loss of water supply, ordinary demands and requirements of PCWA's customers cannot be satistfied without depleting the water supply to the extent that there would be insufficient water for human consumption, sanitation and fire protection. Delivery and use restrictirons to PCWA's Western Water System customers must therefore be implemented until normal water supplies can be restored (CA Water Code 350).
