Insta-Valve 250 Helps Avoid Nearly Citywide Water Service Disruption

Calipatria, CA — Golden State Water provides of water and sewer services to residents of Calipatria, California and over 90 other communities in the region. Residents, businesses, and visitors all rely on the dedication of the men and women of Golden State Water to keep their neighborhood running through its utility services.

Golden State Water discovered there was a leak coming from a section of a 6-inch, asbestos cement water line. Crews were dispatched to turn valves surrounding the leak to isolate the area for repair.
