Ribbon Cutting Ceremony Attendees

The Calaveras County Board of Supervisors authorized the use of funding from a PG&E settlement for fire protection in Sheep Ranch. CCWD partnered with the County and the Sheep Ranch Fire Department to relocate and install a second water tank on CCWD property in Sheep Ranch. The County provided funding for the tank relocation and installation costs, while CCWD provided the water tank and engineering and construction management services. In addition to a second tank, CCWD also installed a new fire hydrant to give water tenders better access to water in the event of a fire. This multi-agency collaboration enhances fire protection and water storage for the Sheep Ranch community and surrounding areas.

Planning Commissioner Tim Laddish and Fire Chief Jeff Stone spearheaded the project at the outset and were at today’s event to celebrate a successful effort. CCWD General Manager, Michael Minkler, observed that “this is an example of local agency collaboration at its best. It couldn’t have happened without the contributions from everyone involved and we were all focused on implementing the best available solution for the communities we serve. In the grand scheme, it’s a relatively small project, but I think we’re all extremely proud of this one.”
