The case of the missing water solved by hikers

After reading the local newspaper story about millions of gallons of water gone missing from East Quincy Services District on plumasnews.com, Danielle and Jesse Frid put two and two together.

They had noticed on several different hikes in their neighborhood that water was gushing out of an overflow pipe near a water tank off Clough Street in their East Quincy neighborhood.


In EQSD’s search to locate the water leak, which appears to have been occurring for the last couple months, district staff checked all of the district’s wells, tanks and valves, but could find no leaks.

When the couple called Tuesday, June 24 to say the water was gushing out right then, staff went to the site and determined there was a problem with the SCADA (Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition) system and a discrepancy in the levels set.

Based on the amount of flow gushing from the overflow pipe, the district determined that it was indeed the source of its missing millions of gallons of water. Staff worked with Sierra Controls and fixed the problem last week, interim general manager Shawneen Howe said.
