PHOTO CAPTION: A trench for a new Amador Water Agency water line was dug recently near the intersection of Buckhorn Ridge and Pioneer Creek Roads. The new pipeline will connect the water tank on Deadwood Court to homes on Carson Drive. It will increase fire hydrant flows and eliminate periods of low water pressure in homes and at Pioneer Elementary School during use of the hydrants. The construction is fully paid for by a Community Development Block Grant to Amador County. Amador County Supervisors partnered with AWA in receiving a $1.42 million grant to upgrade water mains in the area, improving water pressure for homes, correcting a health hazard, and improving water supply for fire fighting.
