PHOTO ATTACHED: Visible from Hwy. 88 in Buckhorn, Amador Water Agency’s new water treatment and recycling facilities now under construction include a large “wet well” that will operate below ground when completed. The project at Buckhorn Water Treatment Plant is designed to upgrade water treatment processes to meet new, more stringent state requirements and conserve up to 14 million gallons of water per year. The project is fully funded by grant of over $2 million from the State Water Resources Control Board that will not need to be paid back. Vinciguerra Construction of Jackson is the contractor for the project.
