This weak weather system may have brought strong winds and cooler temperatures, but the rain—and there wasn't a lot—simply side-stepped much of Claremont, drifting mostly to our south. There was some a rain and light snow in the mountains, but nothing to really dent the need for precipitation. Of course the weather also provided a colorful sunset, shot from the Mills Avenue overpass over the 210 freeway. The weather will remain more winter-like, with highs around 60 and lows in the 40s. Chance of rain still remains very low, even over the next two weeks. COURIER photo/Peter Weinberger

Golden State Water Company lifted the precautionary boil water notice that was issued on February 6 to approximately 2,000 customers impacted by the recent service interruption and loss of pressure in the northern portion of the Claremont system.
A clearer picture of the cause of Tuesday’s water outage is beginning to take shape.
As many as 2,000 customers in Claremont experienced water service interruption Tuesday, February 6, due to what Ben Lewis, Golden State Water’s Foothill district manager, explained as a “higher-than-usual system demand during a planned maintenance shutdown at the Miramar Treatment Plant operated by Three Valleys Municipal Water District.”
Three Valleys, a regional supplemental water supplier, said system demand should not have caught Claremont by surprise Tuesday.
Golden State Water Company issued a boil water notice for residents in the areas impacted by the water shutoff Tuesday to kill bacteria and other organisms that may currently be in the city’s tap water.
