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. The company warns that failure to follow the advisory could result in stomach or intestinal illness.

City residents are cautioned to boil tap water today before drinking it—at least those who currently have water service. Golden State Water even went door-to-door, above, handing out bottled water to residents living above Base Line Road.

Mark your calendars, Claremont—CicLAvia is coming to town on April 22.
Around 30 residents gathered at the Hughes Center to listen to representatives for the popular Los Angeles outdoor event talk about the plan Wednesday evening.
CicLAvia started in LA in 2010, but has its roots in Bogota, Colombia, where city officials have shut down streets once a week and on holidays.
The moon is just past being fully eclipsed as it sets Wednesday morning in north Claremont. The event was a trifecta for stargazers as it was a super moon, a blue moon and a lunar eclipse all in one. Unfortunately, the super moon will not help our warm weather situation as sunny skies and winter heat will continue for the next couple of weeks. Expect high temperatures around 80, with lows in the mid-50s.

Thousands of people each year will make their way up and around the 5-mile loop trail and the Claremont Hills Wilderness Park. The road however, is not only steep, there's no direct route around the park. The loop trail will connect you to other hikes leading to areas along the base of the San Gabriel Mountains, the most popular destination being Potato Mountain. The hiking weather will be near perfect, with high temperatures hovering around 80 degrees, with lows in the mid-50s for the remainder of the week. Even the long range forecast has these temperatures remaining steady for the next 2-3 weeks. And of course, no rain, even in mountain areas. COURIER photo/Peter Weinberger
