Who We Are
Blue Lake Springs Mutual Water Company is a not-for-profit, mutual water company formed and owned by the people it serves to develop, distribute, supply and deliver water for domestic use to the land area situated in Calaveras County, California known as the Blue Lake Springs subdivision (units 1 through 5 and 7 through 13).
Our Board of Directors is elected by voters (shareholders) of the Blue Lake Springs development and is charged with the responsibilities of establishing policies and rates; the construction and maintenance of facilities; acquiring, owning, leasing, or developing water, water rights or water bearing lands; and any other decision necessary to provide water services to our shareholders. Daily operations are administered by a General Manager who is appointed by the Board of Directors.
Current Projects - Meter Installation Project
The State of California has mandated that all water purveyors install water meters on each customer that has a service connection (Assembly Bill No. 2572). Since BLSMWC serves less than 3,000 customers in our Blue Lake Springs subdivision, we have to have meters installed by 2025. It further states that “without water meters, it is impossible for homeowners and businesses to know how much water they are using, thereby inhibiting conservation, punishing those who conserve, and rewarding those who waste water”.
To this end, on May 14, 2016 your Board of Directors of Blue Lake Springs Mutual Water Company approved the implementation of Phase 1 of our water meter installation program. This program will install approximately 250 radio-read meters on the most recent infrastructure improvement areas.
Future Phases of this ongoing project will begin in the Spring of 2017.
