Water from Lake Nacimiento is not making it this month to the various San Luis Obispo County districts that depend on it as part of their drinking water supply because the pipeline that carries that water has been shut down. A few weeks ago, county workers discovered a leak in the pipe.

According to the Atascadero Mutual Water Company, the Nacimiento Water Project is the largest public works project in county history.
