Maintenance District 05, Mountain Ranches


MD-05 Alerts and Updates:



Maintenance District 5, Mountain Ranches, is located northeast of Hensley Lake on Road 400. The district will provide water service to approximately 50 homes when final build out is complete. About 23 homes are currently served. Water is supplied from two deep wells drawing from rock fractures approximately 600 to 800 feet below the surface. The wells, with a combined production of approximately 25 gallons per minute, supply a 20,000 gallon storage tank. From there, the system utilizes a gravity fed distribution system to supply the district. Water from the wells is chlorinated to maintain disinfection prior to distribution.

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-5 will be conducted on the 10th of March, June, September, and December.  These readings will be based on a 91-Day quarter and are subject to change if the 10th 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.
