PUBLIC MEETING: Tuolumne Utilities District Board of Directors, 2 p.m. Tuesday, TUD Board Room, 18885 Nugget Blvd., Sonora.
The Tuolumne Utilities District board will vote Tuesday on a plan to purchase Stanislaus River water via the Chicken Ranch Rancheria of Me-Wuk Indians — one of several steps by the district needed to lessen the blow of an historic drought.
Under the agreement, the district would buy up to 2,400 acre-feet — roughly enough water to serve 4,800 homes — for $200 an acre-foot.
