The plans, status and anticipated timeline for construction of Fairview Water District’s proposed $1.9 million project will be discussed Jan. 22. Meetings are usually held in a board member’s home and no location had been decided at the weekend.
Fairview Water District Board Chairman David Nielson said an engineer from PEC Engineering of Salt Lake City will lay out plans for the project. In addition, Susan Lorenz, community development director for Southeastern Idaho Council of Governments (SEICOG), Pocatello, will be in attendance.
SEICOG is helping fund the project with about $500,000 in Idaho Community Development Block Grant funds. That’s money passed to the state from federal sources.
Details such as when funds will be available may be revealed at that meeting, Nielson said, with hopes the project could be started in the spring. District stockholders previously strongly supported passage of a bond to help fund the project.
Water rates, based on gallons used, were raised $8 to $38. That will generate about $15,000 toward the project.
“The main goal is to develop the springs and build a new chlorination building,” said district secretary Debbie Gregory. Two Foster Creek Springs will see improvements and spring boxes will be built, along with improvements to the disinfection system, The Citizen was told previously.
