San Andreas water supply OK for 2014

Drought watchers may recall a story last week about the water supply for various Calaveras County communities. At the time I called, Donna Leatherman, the manager for Calaveras Public Utility District, did not know exactly how much water was in the reservoir that serves San Andreas, Mokelumne Hill and a few other communities. She called me back, however, to say that Jeff Davis Reservoir had 1,765 acre feet of water in storage, or far more than the 900 to 1,100 acre feet a year required to serve district customers. And that was BEFORE the rain storms of the last five days … so San Andreas is fine for 2014.
