CCWD has ‘adequate’ water supply

While California is faced with a drought of historic proportions, Calaveras County Water District leaders said Wednesday the district has enough water to meet current and future demands.

CCWD General Manager Mitch Dion told the district’s Board of Directors that the district’s 12,000-plus customers are not in the same boat as residents of neighboring counties. 


“We have an adequate water supply this year,” he said.

Comparing the district to neighboring Tuolumne Utilities District, which serves most of Tuolumne County’s customers, he noted CCWD has “water rights” in a handful of areas while TUD does not. 

“We are different than Amador and Tuolumne,” Dion said. 

Cognizant of the drought at hand, TUD late last year approached CCWD for “water supply relief,” Dion said.
