Maintenance District 01, Hidden Lakes

MD-01 Alerts and Updates:


Maintenance District 1, Hidden Lakes, is currently under a building moratorium pending resolution of water system issues. Building is limited to those parcels identified as having already begun the permitting process prior to December 6, 2005.

The district is located in the area of Millerton Lake on its North Western shoreline. There are approximately 208 lots with 46 existing homes receiving water. Water is supplied from Millerton Lake, which is fed from snow melt and stream runoff from the San Joaquin River Watershed. The water is received through an underwater intake structure and treated by filtration and disinfection before being distributed to the customers. The water system consists of a 60 gallon per minute surface water treatment plant built in 1986. Two pumps in the lake supply the plant with raw water and two pumps at the plant supply a 135,000 gallon storage tank with treated water. It is then distributed by gravity flow to the district. The distribution system is steel pipe. The water system is chlorinated to maintain disinfection.

Madera County Engineering Department routinely monitors for contaminants in your drinking water according to Federal and State laws. Our constant goal is to provide you with a safe and dependable water supply. A Consumer Confidence Report is prepared annually and delivered to all residents served by the water district. These reports, prepared especially for this district, are available for viewing below. Adobe Acrobat Reader, which may be downloaded free of charge from Adobe’s website, is required to view and/or print them. Be aware that there is a one year lag time in these reports; i.e., the report dated 2004 contains test results collected in 2004, but the report is not written or released until approximately June, 2005. Future dates will be posted as they become available.

Quarterly Water Meter Readings for MD-1 will be conducted on the 5th of March, June, September, and December.  These readings will be based on a 91-Day quarter and are subject to change if the 5th falls either on a Holiday or on a weekend.

To report an after hour or holiday emergency relating to your sewer or water service in the districts listed above, please contact the Sheriff’s Department at (559) 675-7769 for Valley locations, or (559) 642-3201 for Mountain locations.  During office hours, please contact the Special Districts Division directly at (559) 675-7820.

If you have any further questions regarding this service area please contact the Madera County Resource Management Agency, Engineering and General Services Department, Special District Division at (559) 675-7820.
