- The search for a watermaster
Judging by the ample rain in November and December, the board of directors of the North San Joaquin Water Conservation District anticipate they will be granted their 20,000 acrefeet allotment of water in 2013. Currently, they do not employ a watermaster to run the pumps and pipelines.
Former board president Joe Petersen said he and director Joe Valente were in talks with the Woodbridge Irrigation District to potentially hire one of their employees on a part-time basis to serve as watermaster. Those talks are not yet final. Petersen said if a contract with WID cannot be worked out, the district will look to hire and train someone else for the part-time position.
