Redding Water Utility crew flushes well, causes flooding

Water Utility crews were out in Redding flushing a well Tuesday, but ended up flooding a street.

The flood happened around 9 a.m. near Old Oregon Trail and Rancho Road. Because the well is not connected to the city’s water system, it flows into the street.

The crew says it is all part of a monthly water sample the utility collects to check for bacteria levels in drinking water.

The sample will be sent to the Shasta County Department of Public Health for testing.
