CCWD eyes TUD water sale

Calaveras County Water District plans to study its water rights on the Stanislaus River to see if it has water available to eventually sell to neighboring agencies, such as water-strapped Tuolumne Utilities District. 

CCWD’s Board of Directors voted Wednesday to fund the new study regarding water usage in the Stanislaus River watershed.
