Water Board Lifts Cap On Connections

Murphys, CA — A handful of builders in the Forest Meadows Subdivision have a green light to build from Calaveras County Water District.

The Board of Directors met yesterday to vote on four exceptions to the district´s mandatory cap on water and sewer connections. The cap was passed this summer when it was discovered the district´s treatment plant was at capacity.

Interim General Manager Larry Diamond said the actual use of the facilities will occur over a number of years and will allow the district time to expand.

Meanwhile the district has applied for a permit to put treated water into the Stanislaus River.
