Water Main Leak Repaired
Last Updated 7/17/2020 12:45 pm

A break in a 16-inch water transmission line has been repaired and the system was placed back in full operation Friday, following two rounds of state-mandated testing to ensure the water quality.

City of Redlands Water Division staff discovered the break in the line at a City pumping station near Ford Park Monday morning, July 13. More than 3.6 million gallons of water was lost before the leak was capped Tuesday.

More than 6,200 water customers representing more than 23,000 residents were asked to conserve water, especially during the peak morning hours, because of the low water levels to City reservoirs and to ease strain on the system during the repairs and testing.

TryCo Consulting Inc. of Corona, Calif., won a $94,860 contract to repair the line after four companies were invited to submit bids.

Following the repairs and chlorination, two water samples taken 16 hours apart were tested to ensure water quality. Both samples came back clear, and the State Water Quality Control Board authorized the City to put the main back in service Friday morning.
