UPDATED December 29, 2021: Due to circumstances beyond our control, the raw water supply that feeds the water treatment plant has been interrupted due to the recent storm. We are currently utilizing our storage tanks for water supply and are not producing water to replenish the tanks.

There is a high potential of running out of water if we do not take measures to conserve.
We are asking all customers to minimize water use, even after your power is restored. The timing of restoration of the raw water supply and resuming water production is unknown. This request remains effective until January 5th , 2022.
Thank you for your help maintaining our community’s water supply. Distribution of this notice to all our customers is not possible due to access limitations due to snow, downed lines and road closures. Please spread the word and pass this information on to your neighbors.
We provide treated water service to over 550 customers in the Weimar Area. We also wholesale treated water to the Midway Heights County Water District, which serves about 350 additional customers between West Weimar Cross Roads to Meadow Vista and to the Weimar Institute.
We purchase raw water from the Placer County Water Agency (PCWA) and pump the water from the Boardman Canal to the water treatment plant. Treatment consists of flocculation and sedimentation and filtration to remove dirt and other organic material from the water. The “settled” water then passes through two multimedia filters that utilize anthracite (a type of coal) and fine sand to remove pathogens. The water is then chlorinated and stored in our water tanks. We treat 1,000,000 gallons per day in the summer.
Water is conveyed to your home through a network of pipelines that range size between 4 to 10-inches in diameter. We maintain over 27 miles of pipeline.
