Welcome to Alta Irrigation District

Cyber-Attack against Anthem Blue Cross

Members who may have been impacted by the recent cyber-attack against Anthem Blue Cross should be aware of scam email campaigns targeting current and former members.  These scams, designed to capture personal information (known as “phishing”), are designed to appear as if they are from Anthem and the emails include a “click here” link for credit monitoring. These emails are NOT from Anthem.

             DO NOT click on any links in email.

             DO NOT reply to the email or reach out to the senders in any way.

             DO NOT supply any information on the website that may open, if you clicked on a link in email.

             DO NOT open any attachments that arrive with the email.

Anthem is not calling members regarding the cyber-attack and is not asking for credit card information or social security numbers over the phone. This outreach is from scam artists who are trying to trick consumers into sharing personal data. There is no indication that the scam email campaigns are being conducted by those that committed the cyber-attack, or that the information accessed in the attack is being used by the scammers.

Members were previously advised to register at www.anthem.com/ca to enable email communications

regarding whether their personal information was included in the breached information. However, Anthem is no longer allowing new registrations on the website to mitigate any further potential damage. Anthem will contact current and former members via mail delivered by the U.S. Postal Service about the cyber-attack with specific information on how to enroll in credit monitoring. Affected members will receive free credit monitoring and ID protection services.

For more guidance on recognizing scam email, please visit the FTC

website:   http://www.consumer.ftc.gov/articles/0003-phishing.

ACWA/JPIA will continue to immediately share information as it becomes available.

Members with questions about the breach should visit  www.AnthemFacts.com or call Anthem’s dedicated hotline at 1-877-263-7995.

 


 

California Groundwater Legislation

Governor's Message:

To the Members of the California Legislature:

I am signing AB 1739, SB 1168 and SB 1319, which taken collectively establish a new structure for managing the State's groundwater. These bills accomplish a number of goals described in the California Water Action Plan, a five-year plan to sustainably manage our water resources. When combined with the other elements outlined in the plan -- conservation, water recycling, expanded storage, safe drinking water, wetlands and watershed restoration - and the passage of Proposition 1, we can take giant strides to secure California's water future. A central feature of these bills is the recognition that groundwater management in California is best accomplished locally. Local agencies will now have the power to assess the conditions of their local groundwater basins and take the necessary steps to bring those basins in a state of chronic long-term overdraft into balance. The State's primary role is to provide guidance and technical support on how to plan for a more sustainable future and to step in on an interim basis when, but only when, local agencies fail to exercise their responsibilities as set forth in this legislation. My administration will work closely with all affected groups to ensure that the statute is fairly implemented. Further, I will submit for legislative consideration during the next session a proposal to streamline judicial adjudications of groundwater rights. GOVERNOR EDMUND G. BROWN JR.

AltaID News Release - Ditch Breach

News Release

Alta Irrigation District

July 7, 2014

On Sunday, July 6, 2014, at approximately 6:00 p.m., Alta Irrigation District’s Main Canal breached north of Highway 180. The Alta ID turned on water that morning and was running a start-up flow of 250 cubic feet per second. The area of the levee that breached is lined but was undermined by wild pigs.

In response to the event of water impacting nearby residences and Highway 180, Alta ID called for an emergency shutoff at 6:30 p.m. to the Kings River Water Association. Within several hours water noticeably receded from the impacted area. Public safety response from Caltrans, Calif. Fire, Fresno County Sheriff officers and other early public agency response personnel was much appreciated for traffic control and general public safety.  

Alta ID has reviewed the damaged levee section and is implementing repairs. The scheduled repair is estimated to take one week. As a result, water run will be delayed for one week and will be re-initiated early next week.
