County of Madera


Maintenance District 43, Miami Creek Knolls

MD-43 Alerts and Updates:


Maintenance District 43, Miami Creek Knolls, is located in Madera County, northwest of Oakhurst in the area of State Highway 49 and Lauri Lane. This district currently provides water service to 27 homes.

Water is supplied from four deep wells drawing from rock fractures approximately 200 to 400 feet below the earth's surface. The wells, with a combined production of approximately 15 gallons per minute, supply a 13,000 gallon storage tank. The district has also arranged for the purchase of a supplemental supply of water on an automatic, as-needed basis from Maintenance District 60, Dillon Estates. Boost pumps and pressure tanks are used to supply the district. The distribution system is 1� and 2 inch ABS, poly and steel pipe. The Miami Creek system exceeds the maximum contaminant level for nitrate. By blending this water with Dillon Estates', the nitrate level is reduced and maintained at a safe level; however, it is uncertain how long MD-60 can continue to supplement the water supply and it must be understood that this is not a long-term solution. The primary focus for each district is to provide enough water of sufficient quantity and quality to meet its own needs. While the County is looking for ways to make these major system improvements, it is safe to say that they will result in additional expense for the residents. The Miami Creek system is 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.
