Byron, CA (August 31, 2017) – Emergency repairs are underway to restore water service to Byron-Bethany Irrigation District (BBID) growers, after an irrigation line was struck early Thursday morning.

A contractor with Contra Costa County was working to modify the intersection of Camino Diablo and Byron Highway when the pipe was struck, interrupting service to several BBID growers.

BBID crews are excavating the damaged pipe, and are working to make repairs.

Service is expected to be restored by the end of the day.







UPDATE: Repairs are complete. The backfill operation will occur Friday morning, and water deliveries will resume at 9 a.m.
