County of Madera


Maintenance District 08A, North Fork

MD-08A Alerts and Updates:

Maintenance District 8A, North Fork, is located in the town of North Fork in Madera County. The district will provide sewer and water service to approximately 200 homes, apartments and businesses when final build out is complete. About 155 are currently served by the water and/or sewer systems.

The sewer system consists of an asbestos cement pipe collection system, one raw sewage pumping station, an extended aeration treatment process, chlorine disinfection, treated water pumping, pond, irrigation pump station and sprayfield. The pond, irrigation pump station and sprayfield are located on Auberry Road. The treatment plant has the capacity to operate very well at the current flows; however, future growth will necessitate plant upgrades.

Water for the district is supplied from one deep well drawing from rock fractures approximately 520 feet below the surface. The well produces about 240 gallons per minute and supplies a 200,000 gallon storage tank. From there, the system utilizes a gravity fed distribution system to supply the district. There is one other well within the district for future use. The system is fairly new, with PVC distribution system piping. This water system is not chlorinated.

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-8 will be conducted on the 5th of January, April, July, and October.  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.
*Meters are read, but not billed by a metered rate yet
