Groveland Community Services District needs to find nearly $2 million — the equivalent of its annual water budget — to install a filtration system at one of its water treatment plants, as a result of the drought.
The district learned late last month that the San Francisco Public Utilities Commission plans to draw water out of Cherry Lake if the current drought continues into next year. The SFPUC is preparing to open bids from contractors on an estimated $10 million project to repair the Lower Cherry Aqueduct that was damaged in last year’s Rim Fire.
