SHASTA COUNTY, Calif. - People are being told to boil water in the Jones Valley area due to a landslide at the Mariners Point in Shasta County, according to the Shasta County Department of Public Works.

People in Jones Valley may have low pressure or water outages.

On Wednesday, an eight-inch raw water main was damaged due to the forces created by the active landslide.

The landslide damaged a raw water transmission main from the Lake Shasta Pump station to the Jones Valley water treatment plant.

On Sept. 30, public works installed a bypass to continue serving water from the existing Shasta Lake pump station but the landslide continued to slide.

Now, public works cannot provide reliable water from the pump station.

Public works anticipate reliable water to be delivered on Oct. 13 but will notify the public when the boil water advisory is canceled.

The U.S. Forest Service is working with state officials to build a temporary pump station to supply Jones Valley.

Bottled water is available at the Jones Valley Fire Hall.

People can boil water or use bottled water.
