Boil Water Advisory Issued After Landslide Damages Water Pipeline

Water may not be safe to drink in Jones Valley. A boil water order is in effect for all customers of the Jones Valley Community Services District. A landslide at the road to Mariners Point damaged an 8-inch raw water transmission main from the Lake Shasta Station to the Jones Valley Water Treatment Plant. A bypass was installed but the landslide has continued, so the pump station is not reliable. Work is underway to build a temporary pump station and it’s hoped that reliable clean water delivery can resume by next Wednesday, but until notified otherwise, tap water should not be consumed in any way without being boiled first. Residents may pick up supplies of bottled water at the Jones Valley Fire Hall.
