AUBURN -- Financial assistance grants to three local community water purveyors were approved Monday (Apr. 29) by the Placer County Water Agency Board of Directors.

The 2013 grants include:

  • $5,000 to the Christian Valley Park Community Services District for a water system mapping project and storage tank location study;
  • $15,000 to the Tahoe City Public Utility District for a feasibility study on interconnections and backup water supplies along the West Shore of Lake Tahoe;
  • Two grants totaling $11,000 to the Foresthill Public Utility District.  The district plans to use $4,000 to add digital data recording equipment at its water treatment plant and $7,000 to add backup analyzers at the water treatment plant;

The four funded projects share a total $31,000 made available through this year's PCWA Financial Assistance Program.  Since 1993, PCWA has granted more than $1.6 million to local water purveyors in Placer County.
