New Partnership Formed Between CUSD And CCWD

New Partnership Formed Between CUSD And CCWD

A new partnership was formed between the Calaveras Unified School District and the Calaveras County Water District recently when both Boards unanimously approved a memorandum of understanding.   The districts are working together on a plan to connect Jenny Lind Elementary School to CCWD’s public sewer system.  The school has been operating an on-site sewage treatment and disposal system, which is antiquated and has reached the end of its useful life.   While the old plant is still functioning, CUSD does not have funds to replace the old equipment, which is why the preferred option is to connect to CCWD’s system using grant funding.   A $500,000 planning grant was obtained by CUSD in early 2018 to develop a plan for the project. In 2019, CUSD will apply for a construction grant from the Clean Water State Revolving Fund to fund the entire project, which is expected to be $7 million.  If the project moves forward as planned, construction would likely begin late next year.  During construction, CCWD’s sewer line on Vista Del Lago Drive will be expanded by about 3.5 miles along Berkesey Lane, under Highway 26 to Baldwin Street, ending at the Jenny Lind Elementary School.
