TUD headquarters

The headquarters for Tuolumne Utilities District at 18885 Nugget Blvd. in East Sonora.

As the ongoing drought in California worsens, Tuolumne Utilities District will enforce state-imposed restrictions that include mandatory prohibitions on certain types of water use and voluntary cutbacks on outdoor watering.

The agency that more than 33,000 Tuolumne County residents rely upon for water announced Friday that it has begun implementing “level II” of its Water Shortage Contingency Plan, as all water providers throughout the state were required to do by June 10 under an executive order that Gov. Gavin Newsom issued in March.
