Pump shutdown causes brief water pressure drop in North

| Filed under

A pump shutdown at the Rio Oso water facility dropped water pressure in Units 3 and 4 of Murieta North, leaving some residents without water for a brief period Saturday morning. The pumps shut off after the water level in the 1.2-million-gallon Rio Oso tank fell to 10 feet, triggering a low-water alarm at about 9:30 a.m., according to Paul Siebensohn, Community Services District acting director of field services.

Siebensohn said CSD operation and utility crews restarted the pumps by 9:45 a.m. The pressurized system supplies about 30 percent of the community's potable water.

Siebensohn said a reduction in the water supply to the tank combined with high early morning water demand caused the problem. Read more » about Pump shutdown causes brief water pressure drop in North
