East Valley Water District has begun the consolidation process with Baseline Gardens Mutual Water Company, to transfer their customers to EVWD water service.
EVWD has received a $6.4 million grant from the California Department of Public Health to design the project and to install pipeline, water meters and new fire hydrants. In previous consolidations, the homeowners joining the District were required to pay for project cost through the formation of an assessment district. However, these grants allow for all of the right-of-way construction to be completed at no additional cost to the customer.
For more information about this project contact the District Engineering Department at (909) 888-8986.
