As the drought continues, another water station is being opened, this one on the Butte County Ridge.

Butte County and the Del Oro Water Company are coordinating to provide emergency water to residential well owners whose wells are dry, or not producing enough water.

The station is located at 14147 Lakeridge Court in Magalia.

Residents can acces up to 500 gallons of water per day, and while it is not for drinking, the water can be used for household functions, such as showering, laundry and flushing toilets.

The water is available by appointment only, Mondays and Thursdays, between 2 and 3 p.m. starting September 28.

Appointments must be scheduled at least 24 hours ahead of time, by calling the Office of Emergency Management at 530-538-7631.
