PHOTO ATTACHED: AWA crews worked Friday night to disconnect a pump station from the main water distribution system in Ione after flood waters in Sutter Creek eroded the property under the pump station building. The pump station near the Preston Avenue bridge is used to boost water pressure in Ione during periods of very high water demand, and was disconnected to protect Ione’s water system in the event that creek flows further undermine the structure. Most water customers in Ione should not see any change in their service but a few areas in Ione may experience a slight reduction in water pressure.
