At a special meeting Monday, the North San Joaquin Water Conservation District Board of Directors announced they are seeking a replacement for outgoing director John Ferreira, who resigned for personal reasons. The position will be filled by appointment by the board for the remainder of Ferreira's term, set to expire in November 2012. At that time, the appointed director may decide to run for a full term or not.


— Live within the area to be represented.

— Be willing to commit time to attend meetings.

— Have some experience and be interested in local water issues.

Area to be represented

Interested prospective board members must live in Division 2. This division is broken down into three sections for the purposes of this description. The three sections are contiguous and form one larger area.

Westerly section

Bordered by Ham Lane on the west, a line parallel with a half-mile west of Alpine Road on the east, Eight Mile Road on the south and Hogan Road and its westerly and easterly projections on the north.

Central section

Bordered by a line parallel to Alpine Road on the west, a line one-half mile west of Tretheway Road and its southerly projection on the east, Live Oak Road on the south and the Mokelumne River on the north.

Easterly section

Bordered by a line one-half mile west of Tretheway Road and its southerly projection on the west, the Calaveras County line on the east, Live Oak Road and its easterly projection on the south, and an irregular northern border formed by Kettleman Lane from the Calaveras County line west to Atkins Road, Atkins Road south to Harney Lane, and Harney Lane west to the line one half mile west of Tretheway Road.

Please note that this is a general description and is not parcel specific. Any interested persons living near the edges described above should check with the District Manager for specific parcels, by writing to him at P.O. Box 428, Clements, 95227, or calling him at 712-5034.

Demands on time

As the board also participates in other associations and advisory groups, such as the San Joaquin County Water Advisory Board, The San Joaquin County Groundwater Banking Authority, the Mokelumne River Forum and the San Joaquin County Eastern Water Alliance, the applicant should expect to participate at some level here as well.

To apply

Send a written statement of interest with your background, description of experience in water issues and vision for the district. Include name, physical address, mailing address and contact information.

Mail Statements of Interest to the North San Joaquin Water Conservation District, P.O. Box 428, Clements, CA 95227. A submissions must be received before 5 p.m. Feb. 16.
