2013 WATER QUALITY REPORT
Water conservation is the most cost-effective and environmentally sound
way to reduce our demand for water. Using less water also puts less pressure on our sewage
treatment facilities, and uses less energy for water heating.
THE WATER AND ENERGY CONNECTION
Saving water also saves energy. 6.5% of the energy used in the state of
California is for pumping and treating water--in fact, pumping water
south (and uphill) in the State Water Project accounts for 2-3% of all
the electricity used in the state. And for your personal energy bill,
using less hot water saves on water heating. On the flip side, saving
energy and using alternative energy saves water--electricity production
from fossil fuels and nuclear energy is responsible for 39% of all
freshwater withdrawals in the nation.
WHAT CAN I DO?
There are many effective ways to conserve water in and around your home.

About the District:
The Lake Don Pedro Community Services District is a special district that provides water to a population of approximately 3,200 people. The CSD has been in operation since 1980, when the water district was entrusted to the community. A General Manager is appointed by, and reports to, a five panel Board of Directors.
The community encompasses portions of La Grange and Coulterville, which overlaps Mariposa and Tuolumne County. Water is pumped from Lake McClure and blended with ground water before treating it and pumping it into our distribution system with over 1,400 service connections. The District is minutes away from two of California’s most beautiful lakes – Lake Don Pedro and Lake McClure. Fishing, boating, and water skiing are just a few of the fun things you can do in the area. In addition, Yosemite is just a 45 minute drive away.
