UPDATE: Canyon Country mobile home residents without water

Reports water restored to some residences

Crews were still working Thursday evening to restore water to residents of a Canyon Country mobile home park and had successfully restored water to 275 of the 314 residents.

“We’ll work through the night to get this fixed if we have to,” said Julie Estrada, manager of Cordova Estates Mobile Home Park on the 27300 block of Sierra Highway.

A pipe supplying water to the park’s mobile homes broke Wednesday about noon when a pressure regulator malfunctioned, Estrada said.

“The pipe usually supplies about 60 pounds of water pressure to each home,” but the broken regulator posed the danger of blowing out fixtures inside homes due to higher pressure, she said. “We had to shut the water off for the entire park to fix it.”

One Cordova Estates resident said water cannot be restored quickly enough.

“We’re in a fire hazard area and we have sick and elderly people living here, but we have no water,” Nicolina Markou said just before noon.

Cordova Estates officials purchased several cases of bottled water and delivered water to each resident, Estrada said.

“We handed out 314 bottles door to door,” she said.

There were no reports of injuries or illness caused by the lack of water, Estrada said.

“The moral of the story is that we all need to be prepared for an emergency situation,” she said.

On May 22, residents of the Lake Hills Mobile Home Park in Castaic were without water for more than a day due to a broken water main.
