Makes me wonder who is the biggest water user? The SPI mill? watering all those logs? who? wineries?
Aside from that comment there is no water and we have several people on acreage with ponds draining the underground water to keep their ponds full to the top.
I like what Working Mom said earlier.Just like the good ole days when we used to go camping every Summer.

It's time to use water like you have to carry every bucket up the hill from the well.
We take our usual water supply for granted. We forget how the rest of the world lives.
"Water supply remains a concern, and implementing drought measures is proving to be costly."
Their way of saying, get ready to pay through the nose!
Best way to conserve water is to charge people exactly for what they use...use a little/pay a little. Use alot/pay alot. If i have to pay the flat rate that i am, i am going to use all i am entitled to....i am always under my allotment so there is not incentive for me to conserve any further.
I am still wondering what Sonora's GPCD is. I have called multiple times and get no one..or I get transferred to answering machine, and then right back to the circle again.
Is it THAT difficult to tell us the Gallons Per Capita Per Day.
They bill according to usage, correct?
Then why won't they tell the public what actual usage IS?
Wonder if the mensa's managing the water at the various lakes may want to reevaluate their plans to let the lakes down to obnoxiously low levels every spring.
The water lines at Melonies and other lakes show just how low the water has been the last several years.
Great Question leaperman621 The Answer would be the math formula to figure out how much water we have left.
I asked GOOGLE it says Tuolumne Co 130.6 gallons per resident per day.Calaveras County 196.8, Mariposa 279.8,Amador Co. 216.6 gallons per resident.
Why do a sense a CSERC lawsuit over the Lyon lake water reprieve?
The incentive for you is that you don't wake up one day and turn on your tap and nothing comes out. Common Sense is what we all need to have right now. They are just asking you be aware and use less so the tap doesn't go dry. If the water runs out where will you get yours.
MrCommonSense - I agree wholeheartedly - PAY FOR WHAT YOU USE!! I use less than what I'm allotted and pay for. Consequently, those of us that do that are paying more for what we do use. I will still conserve and try harder to conserve more. The PAY FOR WHAT YOU USE should be the law around the entire state of california. I think I'm correct in saying that several decades ago, it was that way in California.
