PG and E will start the work tomorrow (Friday) morning but it might take quite a few days to get the water thawed out and flowing again to the headwaters where NID can capture it. In the mean time NID has been renting specialized pumps to draw water from lower Scotts Flat Reservoir.

Close says hopefully P G and E will have some water to them by next week so they won’t have to start up the pumps again.
