A message from Markleeville Water Company President, Mary Young:
As you’ve probably noticed, stream flows are high now that the snow has finally melted. Although the additional moisture is good news for the long term, the current high flows are causing problems for our surface water system.
Debris in the water, high turbidity, entrained sand, and decomposed granite in the raw water impact the intake and the treatment process.
Because of these issues we are restricted to well water.
And so, we are asking you to limit water use to domestic use, and NOT TO DO ANY outdoor watering.
When that changes we’ll be sure to post an update here.
Thank you for your help. Working together we can all meet our domestic water needs.
