Our Focus Is Quality Water and Customer Service
In the Gold Rush region of
California, water has never been taken for granted, and is
likely our area's most precious commodity. Our towns, our
businesses, our homes and our natural environment are dependent
on the availability of fresh water.
Our local history reflects the
development of dependable water systems. Formed in 1934, the
Calaveras Public Utility District has a tradition of personal
service and high quality water.
Today, CPUD pumps over 450 million
gallons of water yearly to approximately 2,000 customers in the
35 square mile District that serves a population of almost 5,000
people. Our modern treatment plant filters and chlorinates the
Mokelumne River water which is then gravity fed to San Andreas,
Mokelumne Hill, Glencoe, Paloma and Rail Road Flat. Our eight person
staff is proud of the service and excellent quality water they
