SAN ANDREAS, CA., July 22, 2021 – Calaveras Conserves encourages residents and visitors of the County to use water efficiently and prepare for extended dry conditions. While no mandatory conservation measures have been imposed by state officials, Gov.

However, state officials my be providing updates to conservation measures as early as Friday, July 23.

As we move into the hotter, summer months, we will continue to thank Calaveras County residents and visitors for their ongoing water-use efficiency efforts and will remind everyone to use water wisely. The Calaveras County community can practice water efficiency year-round and make a difference by finding and fixing leaks, taking shorter showers and installing water efficient landscaping.

The Calaveras Conserves water conservation partnership was formed in Spring, 2015 as an opportunity for agencies to provide a consistent outreach message to the community during droughts. All major water agencies in Calaveras County are members. As a partnership, these agencies are meeting regularly during the current drought with the goal of providing the most up to date water conservation information for customers throughout the County.
