Shandon Water System Accidental Damage to Water System, BOIL WATER NOTICE IN EFFECT


COUNTY OF SAN LUIS OBISPO, DEPARTMENT OF PUBLIC WORKS REPORTS - On Tuesday, December 19, 2017 at approximately 9:00 AM a contractor working near the San Juan Creek Bridge on Centre Street in Shandon accidently damaged a main water line. As a result, the water system lost pressure.  To protect public health a Boil Water Notice has been issued.  When water system pressure returns the County of San Luis Obispo Department of Public Works is advising residents of Shandon – County Service Area 16 – to use boiled tap water or bottled water for drinking and cooking purposes as a safety precaution until testing results are available on Thursday, December 21, 2017.

 

County crews are on site excavating the damaged water line and will continue working until the water system is restored.  Efforts to isolate the break from other portions of the water system are underway, including the provision of State Water to areas east of the bridge.
