Pilot leak detection project in Bakersfield

Beginning September 13, Cal Water will be conducting a proactive leak detection pilot in our Bakersfield District (see map below). As part of this pilot, employees from E-Source will survey 150 miles of our distribution system. E-Source employees will be wearing bright yellow shirts with the E-Source logo, and they will be carrying documents confirming that they have permission to survey Cal Water’s system. E-Source employees may open meter boxes or utilize listening devices on hydrants or valves, but will not otherwise need access to customers’ property.

We anticipate that this pilot will be complete by October 25. If you have any questions about this pilot, please contact us.
