Water: ‘Conserve, don’t build’

Finding ways to use water more efficiently and continuing conservation are faster, less expensive alternatives to bolster Tuolumne County’s future supply than seeking water rights or building dams, according to some of the area’s leading experts at a symposium held Thursday night at the Sonora High School auditorium.

About 200 people attended the two-hour discussion, which focused on how to better manage the county’s water system.
