Director Decisions for December
(Montecito, California, December 5, 2017) The District announced this week that its application to the California State Water Resources Control Board for a Water Recycling Planning Grant was accepted November 28th, 2017. Applied for in June of this year, the grant will cover up to $75,000 (50%) of eligible costs for a Recycled Water Facilities Plan / Feasibility Study. The Board voted to accept the terms of the grant and commence a contract with consultants Woodard & Curran to develop and complete the plan. Recycled water is a priority for the District, as it constitutes a reliable local water supply and is an important component of the District’s Urban Water Management Plan.
