The planning grant agreement for the Markleeville Water Company has been drafted by the State and is currently under review. Due to some internal changes with the state’s accounting system, however, the issuance of the agreement has been delayed. The new timeline for the issuance of the agreement is mid-to-late January.
The planning grant will be used to pay for the design and permitting of new water pipelines and system improvements. The planning grant will also be used to prepare all the documents required to obtain a construction grant from the State.
While there have been some delays we remain optimistic and we’ll continue to provide updates as things move along.
