Cal Water Completes Water System Improvements in Oroville

Oroville Station 2 ImprovementsNew Water Well Pump and Motor Will Add Reliability, While Reducing Electricity Maintenance Costs

Customers of Cal Water’s Oroville service area now benefit from increased water supply reliability and lower electricity and maintenance costs, thanks to the replacement of the water well pump and motor at one of Cal Water’s stations in Oroville. The previously installed pump and motor had reached the end of their useful lives, and were proactively replaced as part of Cal Water’s ongoing efforts to ensure its customers continue to have a safe, reliable water system.

According to Toni Ruggle, Cal Water’s Oroville District Manager, the new pump and motor will enable Cal Water to pump additional water from the well, while decreasing the amount of electricity used at the facility.

“We are committed to ensuring our customers have a water system they will be able to rely on for decades to come,” said Ruggle. “Replacing this equipment is part of our commitment to provide our customers with quality, service, and value. Not only is this new equipment more reliable, but its higher efficiency ratings will reduce the amount of electricity needed to operate the well. Combined, these factors help to control our expenses, which directly impacts the rates paid by our customers.”
