RENO, Nev. (AP) - California authorities have located the body of a man who fell into a conduit pipe that carries water to a treatment plant southwest of Lake Tahoe.

KRNV-TV in Reno reports police have identified the man as 34-year-old Tory Robert Mayes of Pollock Pines, California.

The El Dorado County Sheriff’s Office was working Tuesday afternoon to recover his body from the El Dorado Irrigation District’s untreated water conduit in Pollock Pines.

The utility posted a notice on its website Monday evening that said a man fell in near Sly Park Dam south of Pollock Pines.

District General Manager Jim Abercrombie said the district’s thoughts and prayers are with Mayes’ family.

He says there never was an issue with the safety of the drinking water during this incident.
