Last week, a reader asked about a few recent flooding incidents in San Lorenzo. Castro Valley Patch followed up with East Bay Municipal Utilities District (EBMUD).
We recently received the following response from Senior Public Information Officer Charles Hardy:
EBMUD has had two leaks in the past few weeks in the area of interest. One was a hit hydrant on March 3 on Paseo Grande and Hesperian, the second was a service lateral leak at 250 Paseo Grande on March 8. Both of these were reported and responded to promptly. The hydrant was reset the same day and the service lateral was fixed within five days as it was an emergency repair and required 48 hours for utility marking.
District crews have on-going work at E. Lewelling and Albion Avenue, in San Lorenzo that has included shutdowns and service outages for the past two weeks. The flushing activities could be construed as flooding. Other than that we are unaware of any on-going distribution issues. If another area of concern is identified to us we will dispatch staff to investigate the problem.
For any water emergencies, you can contact EBMUD at 1-866-403-2683. You can also email them at firstname.lastname@example.org.
