Drainage & Parking Lot Improvements: 

Beginning Tuesday June 19th, the parking lot and area around the office will be closed to parking and traffic for approximately 3 weeks due to drainage and parking lot improvements.   There will be noise from heavy equipment operation related to the project during normal construction hours.  Please make arrangements for pickup and/or delivery of association documents with the office by calling (209) 728-2511 or email at deanna@fmowners.com ; holly@fmowners.com or keith@fmowners.com

Upon completion, the association will have significantly improved drainage around the office building & parking lot, a fully rebuilt parking lot and the ability to move forward with landscaping improvements around the office building & parking lot area. 

We appreciate your patience during ongoing improvements within the community.

The Calaveras County Water District Board of Directors voted to remove all water conservation restrictions (Read the resolution here), meaning all CCWD customers are now at a 0% conservation level. This decision came after the State Water Resources Control Board made significant changes to statewide water conservation emergency regulations on May 18, which now allow water agencies to set conservation targets based on local water supplies. CCWD calculated its supplies based on the State Board’s guidelines and determined the District does not currently have a supply shortage and, even if the next three years are dry, will not experience a supply shortage.

“The updated requirements from the state reflect much of what we requested in our comments to the State Water Board as local water supply conditions are the primary consideration in calculating each agency’s conservation requirements,” said Dave Eggerton, CCWD general manager. “The action taken today would not have been possible without the incredible support from our community and the many efforts of our dedicated staff.”

ISO Insurance Classification


January 20, 2016

Ebbetts Pass Fire District recently completed an Insurance Services Office(ISO) evaluation which has upgraded the District’s Fire Protection Classification to a 2/2X effective February 1, 2016.

This is good news and a great accomplishment.  EPFD thanks CCWD, BLS Water, CAL FIRE and all the agencies for their support and assistance to the Ebbetts Pass Fire District.  Thanks to EPFD personnel for the great work everyone has done not only to produce the data for the evaluation, but also the hours of training and documentation that went into the process.  Thank you to the communities we serve for your continued support of the Ebbetts Pass Fire District.

ISO’s Public Classification Program (PPC) plays an important role in the underwriting process at insurance companies.  In fact, most U.S. insurers including the largest ones use PPC information as part of their decision-making when deciding what businesses to write, coverage to offer, or process to charge for personal or commercial property insurance. The new classifications will improve the predictive value for insurers while benefiting both commercial and residential property owners.

If you would like to know more about EPFD’s PPC classification, or about the potential effect of proposed changes to your insurance classification, or to obtain information regarding fire hydrant locations for a selected property, please call Ebbetts Pass Fire District during normal weekday business hours, Monday – Friday 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. at (209) 795-1646.

District Administrative Secretary

Western Pine Beetle

Since June of this year there has been an exponential increase in tree deaths from the western pine beetle in Forest Meadows. Outbreaks have been found on Heather Court, Sandalwood and Buckthorn. Trees that were green in June are now browning or completely brown. If you have pine trees on your lot, please take a look (with binoculars if you have them) at the mid tree level for pitch tubes. They will appear as random white dime sized splotches of sap and boring dust. If you see any evidence of activity, please contact a tree service or the office for more resources. Being proactive with an infested tree is likely to determine whether or not additional trees are infested and lost. More detailed information on Bark Beetles can be found on the link below.
