Amador Water System (AWS)

The AWS, which was formerly owned and operated by PG&E, is commonly referred to as the “down-country system.” This water system serves the areas of Jackson, Martell, Sutter Creek, Sutter Hill, Ione, Amador City, and Drytown with treated water from two water treatment plants at Sutter Hill and Ione. This system also serves untreated water from the Amador Canal to hundreds of customers between Lake Tabeaud and Sutter Hill, and Sutter Hill and Ione.

The primary source of consumptive water is the Mokelumne River which is supplied from rainfall and snowmelt from the Sierra Mountain Range. This water is diverted into the Amador Canal at Lake Tabeaud and is gravity fed to the two water treatment plants for treatment.
