The Union Public Utility District (UPUD), City of Angels, and Utica Water and Power Authority (Utica) invite the community to attend a free video premiere of “Water: Our Gold” at 6 p.m. on Thursday, May 4, at the Ironstone Vineyards Music Room.

This video tells the fascinating, 170-year story of the Murphys, Vallecito, and Angels Camp water supply dating back to the Gold Rush. Community members will be amazed at the incredible journey their water takes from the Sierra Nevada all the way down the mountain to their taps.

In addition to the video premiere, UPUD will present the fascinating history of its water system, Utica will present a high-level educational overview of California water rights, and attendees will get a behind-the-scenes look at how Utica staff managed the massive storm flows that stemmed from the atmospheric rivers that pummeled California between December 2022 and February 2023.

Popcorn, cookies, and coffee will be provided free of charge, and wine will be available for purchase.

This is a free event, but space is limited. Attendees should RSVP to UPUD by filling out a webform at, emailing, or calling 209- 728-3651.
