CCWD Is Rapidly Storing Water For Your Use Later

San Andreas, CA...The San Antonio Creek was at flood stage today after a powerful storm over the weekend. This creek is one of the main tributaries of the Calaveras River, which flows into New Hogan Reservoir near Valley Springs. Since January 1, Hogan's water level has risen by more than 30,000 acre feet. CCWD uses water released from Hogan to serve more than 10,000 customers in the greater Valley Springs area.

Our History
The District was formed in 1946 under the laws of the State as a county water district for the purpose of providing water and sewer service to the residents of the Calaveras County. The District is also engaged in the development of hydroelectric power for financial support and development of water supplies. We have operated continuously since 1947.

The District is a political subdivision of the State of California and is not part of, or under the control of, Calaveras County. The District includes all of Calaveras County in the Central Sierra Nevada foothills in the northeastern portion of the State. CCWD boundaries encompass approximately 1,037 square miles of land, (US Census Bureau) ranging from the San Joaquin Valley at its western edge to the Sierra Nevada Mountains in the east.

General District Information
The District includes all of Calaveras County in the Central Sierra Nevada foothills in the northeastern portion of the State. The District boundaries encompass approximately 640,000 acres of land ranging from the San Joaquin Valley to the Sierra Nevada Mountains.

San Andreas, the County seat, is approximately 100 miles east of San Francisco and 60 miles southeast of Sacramento. The city of Angels Camp is the only incorporated community in the County. The population of the County as of January 2009 is estimated by the California Department of Finance, Demographic Research Unit, to be approximately 46,000, with most of the residents living within the various unincorporated communities.

The District currently provides water service to approximately 12,700 municipal and residential / commercial customers in four improvement districts located throughout the County. The District currently provides sewer service to approximately 4,700 customers in six improvement districts located throughout the County.

Governance and Management
The District is governed by a five-member Board of Directors who are elected by qualified voters in the District to four-year terms. Day-to-day management of the District is delegated to the General Manager and other staff members.

District Powers
The District is a not-for-profit public agency. As a Californias Special district, CCWD’s powers include provision of public water service, water supply development and planning, wastewater treatment and disposal and recycling.

The District has broad general powers over the use of water within its boundaries, including the right of eminent domain, authority to acquire, control, distribute, store, spread, sink, treat, purify, reclaim, process and salvage any water for beneficial use, to provide sewer service, to sell treated or untreated water, to acquire or construct hydroelectric facilities and sell the power and energy produced to public agencies or public utilities engaged in the distribution of power, to contract with the United States, other political subdivisions, public subdivisions, public utilities, or other persons, and - subject to Article XIIIA of the State constitution - to levy taxes and improvements.

        Some of you pointing fingers should educate yourself. The water available is above some of your pay grades and thoughts.

Wow, that's unbelievable that they are saving this water. What else could they do, open the floodgates? Thank you CCWD for that amazing idea to "save it" for our use. Who would of thought of that?

    Couldn't even open those with the levels as low as they were.

    I'm going to celebrate the puddle in my lower fields getting to 22", since I must be saving the water too!
