Dear Shareholders,
We are finally seeing some precipitation after a couple of dry winter months. It may not be enough to get us back to normal for the season but we’ll see.

I’ll break down the usage numbers for February.

February Usage

  • 2013 3,157,000 gallons
  • 2014 2,974,000
  • 2015 2,480,000
  • 2016 2,993,000
  • 2017 3,007,000
  • 2018 3,286,000

Usage this February is slightly higher than previous years, and may be due to the sudden influx of people coming up to ski at Bear Valley, because snow came. 2018 usage was higher than 2013 so we did not realize any water savings in February.

Well Levels

Our wells 3 and 4 are at high levels this March in spite of lack of rain and snow in December.

  • Well 3 157 feet above the pump intake.
  • Well 4 768 feet above the pump intake.


Our water supply in the wells is strong, and I don’t anticipate adding any mandatory restrictions this year. We don’t know what the future may hold so please keep conservation on your mind and use water wisely.

That’s all for now.
