The Jenny Lind Water Plant Pre-Treatment Project 

The CCWD Board of Directors awarded a $3.4 million contract to R.E. Smith Construction of Newcastle to build the Jenny Lind Water Plant Pretreatment Project, which will help ensure safe, reliable water service to more than 10,000 people living in the greater Valley Springs area. The District expects to begin construction in April of 2018. Once the new pretreatment facilities are installed, they will remove heavy metals, debris and sediment from river water entering the plant. Without the pretreatment facilities, the existing plant’s operations cannot be optimized and are likely to continue to be overwhelmed by the high levels of mud, ash and organics that are continuing to wash down the Calaveras River from the Butte Fire’s burn scar.  Anyone with questions or concerns about this project should contact Joel Metzger, Manager of CCWD External Affairs at 754-3123.
