AWA Water Main Improvements Continue with $4.9 Million State Grant.
AWA Director Rich Farrington thanks Chair of the Amador County Board of Supervisors, Lynn Morgan, for supporting a $4.9 million state Community Development Block Grant to replace an old water main on Buckhorn Ridge Road near Pioneer Park. Director Farrington said, “This project will improve fire protection and correct bottlenecks in the water main. AWA greatly appreciates the county supervisors’ support for this important project.” Supervisor Morgan said, “The County of Amador is pleased to support this project on behalf of AWA.”
Amador County Supervisors partnered with AWA in receiving the grant to continue upgrades to water mains in the area that began last year, improving water pressure for homes, correcting a health hazard, and increasing water supply for fire fighting. Construction on this second phase is planned for next spring.
