Sonora, CA – Tuolumne County Office of Emergency Services (OES) officials have finalized the schedule for its Dry Well Assistance Workshops.

As reported last week, the drought has impacted more than 180 wells, affecting 300 homes, and six springs have gone dry, according to Coordinator for the Tuolumne County Office of Emergency Services Tracie Riggs.  The increase of dry wells prompted the county to offer a series of workshops on the issue allowing residents one-on-one time with representatives from OES and Tuolumne Utilities District. The workshops will be held in all five districts in the county, with two in District 5 which represents, Columbia and Jamestown, areas with a large number of dry wells that effect more people.
