"Jackson Valley Irrigation District (JVID) has historically delivered untreated surface water from Lake Amador to its customers for irrigation purposes. Since JVID has no authority to control the use on the property side of a customer?s turnout, many customers plumbed the untreated water to their home for domestic purposes. JVID knows of about 60 homes using irrigation water for domestic purposes but suspects more homes are improperly hooked up.
The Oaks Mobile Home Park (0310020), which runs along Jackson Valley Road, treats raw water from Lake Amador to serve approximately 200 connections and 600 people. Although the Oaks MHP does not have a compliance order, they do have a permit condition from the Stockton District Office to find a new source of water due to the poor quality of Lake Amador.
JVID intends to construct a new potable water system to serve all of its customers using treated Lake Pardee water, eliminating Lake Amador as a domestic source. In addition, JVID will construct a master meter turnout along Jackson Valley Road to consolidate the Oaks.
Since this is a consolidation, both small DACs can get a grant (up to $5 million and $30k per connection) for their proportional share of the project. JVID's proportional share covers part of the improvements at the plant site, along with the pipelines to cover their customers. And the Oaks' proportional share covers the remaining plant site improvements and a portion of the pipeline up to their master meter."
