CCSD General manager Jerry Gruber, said "Cambrian's and the community of Cambria have been deliberating, discussing, and arguing over a supplemental source of water, and a year ago this month The CCSD board of directors decided to move forward with an emergency water supply."
The community supported funding this project through prop 218.
said it represents a cumulative effort from the county, and even at the federal level for allowing the community to get the project done in a short amount of time.
It's going pump 300 acre-feet of water a year.
said, "Its not going to provide the community with all its drinking water.
It was designed to get us through the very difficult and challenging drought periods.
added, "It's going to enhance the environment.
This project is going to take 100 gallons a minute that's 14,400 gallons a day."
"We're going to put it into the creek for environmental enhancement so when the creeks are running short on water, It'll enhance the habitat and allow us to be less dependent on our well fields," Gruber
