Calaveras County Issues Mandatory Water Conservation Measures

The Calaveras County Water District has issued mandatory water conservation measures for residential areas of the county after the state told the county to stop diverting water except for human health and safety. 

These restrictions will apply to all 12,600 customers of the Calaveras County Water District. The district’s goal is to reduce water consumption by 35% across the whole district. Cities and communities affected include Arnold, Avery, Copperopolis, Jenny Lind, Sheep Ranch, Vallecito, West Point, and Wilseyville.

The county will be limiting outdoor watering on specific days depending on the house’s address, and irrigation will not be allowed between 10 a.m. and 6 p.m.

The county’s water district website provides guidelines for residents to follow the conservation measures.
