SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - Work crews in California have started repairs to a key pumping station in the state’s water system.

State officials said repairs at the Clifton Court Forebay pumping station started Wednesday. The Department of Water Resources says the pumps there are being shut down to repair a damaged intake valve.

The Clifton Court Forebay is a crucial part of the north-south water system that delivers Northern California water to millions in Central and Southern California. The pumps, pipes and dams in the system have been strained by five years of drought followed by the heaviest rain in decades this winter.

Authorities say they expect no disruption to water deliveries while the repairs are made.
