CCWD Reduces Water Use By 40 percent In June

San Andreas, CA...With an incredible 40 percent reduction in June, there is no doubt that Calaveras County
Water District customers are serious about saving water. This reduction is two-and-a-half times the 16 percent reduction required by the State Water Resources Control Board. The State compares current water use to the same time period in 2013.

“This is a continuing demonstration by members of our community that they are dedicated to saving water,” said CCWD General Manager Dave Eggerton. “We had such a great response with 18 percent savings last year, and this just builds upon that. I can’t thank our customers enough for their commitment to conserving water during this
fourth consecutive year of drought.”

The huge water savings in June were well beyond the District’s expectations, and may have financial implications if conservation continues at this level throughout the summer. The fiscal year 2015-2016 budget built in a 20 percent reduction in water use due to water conservation. With conservation levels reaching 40 percent, significantly
less consumptive revenue is likely to come in.

In light of the high level of water conservation and in response to widespread customer concerns, District staff will work with the CCWD Board in coming weeks to allow greater flexibility with irrigation schedules, which will help residents preserve the life of their trees and shrubs.

Please continue to follow the Stage 3.5 Mandatory Water Conservation Measures that were put into place by the Board on May 13. To view the list of watering restrictions, go to www.ccwd.org and click on “Watering Restrictions.”

Emergency operations mode.
Posted on: 2015-07-21 05:45:17   By: Anonymous
 
Well (not a play on words) if this continues we all know what's next.....higher water rates, and no matter how much rain or snow we get in the future those higher rates will not go away. So instead of rubbing your hands together in anticipation of higher rates that will never go down CCWD I would like to suggest the following, stop all projects that were approved for upgrading that have not started, and if we are in a drought the following year, that you do not start those projects also. You've asked your consumers to cut back, and we did. Now it's time you helped out too by not starting any new projects, then say we need money to do this. Stand up for your consumers that keep you in business and listen for a change. We are going through some difficult times, and you should have to suffer a little like we have to. Stop your projects, stop spending and go to an emergency operation only. As in do your regular assigned duties, to keep the machine running as smoothly as possible while "we are in this situation" Instead of the consumer bailing you out by raising our rates, as in again and again.
In other words, PUT YOUR CHECKBOOK DOWN AND TIGHTEN YOUR BELT just like we have. But these things can be done, even if they have already been approved. If we can do it, and we have, you can do it.
Than you

    You sound just like a crusty old fart. You never have nothing nice to say and trash CCWD. This does not mean that the water rates are going to increase and if they do then stop complaining and pay your bill. There is nothing that you can do about it except move your sorry ass far away from Calaveras County and then you can complain about another water district and everything else that you have to pay for.

      I'm sorry poster #2, I posted that, but I'm served by UPUD, and all my bills are paid off monthly, except my home and land, we paid those off 10 years ago.
      CCWD likes people like you (or you work there) not too bright and don't mind being milked from your money. I'm just trying to shed a little common sense, you don't spend money you don't have (lost revenue) unless you're like our Gov. Brown, just raise taxes and let the working class pull you out of another hole.

I just dont understand how we have to pay for this drought while others do not.
I have been around a hand full of the lakes in Cen Cal and Melones is BY far the most drained.

Not even mentioning, I still see idiots with sprinklers on in their yards.
Dont believe me? How about El dorado bank in Murphys. They run their sprinklers every night. So much that the run off just flows down the street.
Yet no one says anything.

So many people aren't even trying to reduce their water usage..

    If the bank is running their sprinklers every night then report them to CCWD until something is done. Coming on here and complaining won't change anything.

What is more amazing than this, Southern California has received some record rain in the last 7 day's, 90 per cent of that runoff went straight to the ocean, they stand there and watch this happen, and guess what, your governor as we speak is attempting to send them more of the Delta water, that is our water, they say they have no place to store it, good, your on your own, quit asking, or demanding our water, when you don't capture what falls in your streets and land!

    Come on, Sherlock, how exactly were they supposed to catch any significant amount of that water? Put buckets in their backyards?

    If you want new reservoirs in the south then you need canyons you can dam up and taxpayers, including you, willing to pay for those dams.

    Delta water doesn't belong to you anymore than it belongs to people in LA. People in LA pay state taxes that support impoverished Calaveras County.

    What deserves complaint and prosecution are people who waste water wherever they are in the state. There are a lot of green lawns in S. California and that is unacceptable if I am supposed to not water my lawn.

      They can start by daming up the end of the LA river where it runs into the ocean. That will give those bastards enough water to satisfy the folks in Bel Air at least.

      How about we get Governor Moonbeam to make a real run at legislation for water management in this state for ALL its citizens, north to south, instead of pushing the crazy train.

I remember driving walking out on the old bridge in the late 1980s. Long before "climate change" and long before 30,000 acre feet of water was flushed out to the sea to save 29 fish. Yep, leave it to the eco freakos to screw everything up.

    Water Left For Fracking
    Posted on: 2015-07-21 19:54:37   By: Anonymous
     
    Gov Brown still hasn't banned fracking. 500+ fracked wells each month, with millions of gallons of water used for fracking each well.

    At least the water is used for good purposes (sic), and making people sick.

    The State report says fracking poisons the water.

    WTG Gov Brown. Looks like you are owned by big oil/gas.

    Oil/gas is more important that food.
