The new membrane filtration system for Greenville domestic water is up and running. The work it took to get it that way was featured last month in the California Water Journal, a publication by the California Rural Water Association.
The article begins with a short history of the drinking water supply, created in 1865, with construction of the first manmade lake in Plumas County.
Association author John Wendele quoted Indian Valley Community Services District General Manager Leanna Moore and others extensively. They explained the renovation for the author.
Moore described how the old plant was not compliant with state standards, and how boil water notices were not uncommon.
Wendele also described the long and convoluted path to fund the project, from state and federal sources, since Greenville was classified as a disadvantaged community and the district did not have enough in reserves to solve the problem.
“Our congratulations go out to the board of directors and staff of the Indian Valley Community Services District,” he wrote. “Their persistence and dogged determination were key to the success of the project.”
During its August meeting district directors spoke of organizing a tour of the new treatment plant.
Barring special meetings, directors of the Indian Valley Community Services District meet the second Wednesday of each month at 6:30 p.m. in the Indian Valley Civic Center, 430 Main St. in Greenville.
