Lebec County Water District State Zone Repaired Without Wide Shut-off

UPDATE—LEBEC, CA (WEDNESDAY, July 21, 2021 at 4:50 p.m.)— Terrific work by the Lebec County Water District crew this afternoon has the State Zone businesses unaffected by repairs. The LCWD team has successfully completed repairs without need to shut off the system, as previously planned. Only the Frazier Mountain Mobile Home Park will need to boil their water. The lab test results are expected back Friday, July 23. We will report the results here as soon as they are available.

UPDATE—LEBEC, CA (WEDNESDAY, July 21, 2021 at 3:50 p.m.)—The specific areas that will be affected by the Lebec County Water District’s State Zone water outage between 5-10 p.m. today to replace a broken valve are 13 businesses along Frazier Mountain Park Frontage Road. General Manager Jessica Carroll said that will include the AM/PM gas station and the Chinese Red House Restaurant—no other restaurants will be affected. A single family residence and two mobile home parks—Frazier Mountain Mobile Home Park and Oakridge Mobile Home Park—will also be without water for those hours while the broken valve is replaced. The Frazier Mountain Community Health Center will be closed from 5-10 p.m., so its operations will not be affected.

Carroll said that a “Boil Water Order” will be in place after the repair is complete, until the laboratory test comes back to confirm the water meets quality standards. This is routine, whenever a pipe is opened to the air during a repair. State certified laboratory tests are required to assure residents that the water is healthy. We will post that alert here as soon as it is available.
