Drinking Water Service Announcement - Low Water Pressure or Possible Water Outage in El Dorado

by Placerville Newswire / Nov 04, 2019 / comments


We regret the inconvenience, but weather permitting we will be performing system repairs in the Crystal Blvd area in El Dorado. This outage will affect approximately 140 customers.

EID will be performing repairs to the water system supplying this area on Wednesday, November 6 beginning at 9:00 A.M. We anticipate completing the repairs by 3:00 P.M. on the same day. During this time, you may experience low water pressure or loss of water service. Please conserve water by only using it for essential purposes or draw enough water for your needs prior to the start of the repair. 

If your water looks cloudy or dirty, do not drink it or use it for food preparation or personal hygiene purposes.

When normal pressure is restored, you might experience a slight discoloration in the water or the presence of air in the system. To correct this, allow one outside tap to run until the water is clear or the air has escaped.

Your patience and understanding are greatly appreciated.
