IRWD Crews Respond to Service Area Flooding

Irvine Ranch Water District crews have responded to a break in a domestic water main in Williams Canyon.

 

A portion of Williams Canyon Road was washed away during Wednesday's storm event.  Approximately 900 feet of an 8-inch water main located within the roadway was destroyed.  IRWD crews are planning to install a temporary above-ground bypass to restore water service to Williams Canyon.  Because this work cannot begin until storm flows subside and access to Williams Canyon has been restored, we do not yet have an estimate of when this work will be complete. 

 

IRWD staff is working to procure alternative sources of water, including bottled water and water delivery trucks, to assist IRWD customers who do not have water service.

 

The storm also damaged an 8-inch main break in Modjeska Canyon near Modjeska Canyon Road near Markuson Road.  Water service to residents in the Modjeska Canyon area was briefly impacted by this damage. IRWD crews worked quickly to restore service.  

 

IRWD hopes that customers impacted in these areas are safe. Check IRWD's website for updates.
