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 distribute.
