SEELEY, Calif. – The Seeley Water District and Imperial County have teamed up to make improvements to the waste water plant that serves the town. Crews are working on an existing sewer pond that was not in use to transfer their waste water system into by next month.
County officials say the pond that is currently being used had a leak and was in dire need of repairs. Once repaired the old pond will serve as a back-up.
The county and the water district are paying for the $700,000 project with the help of block grants from the state. Officials say this is great because residents will not have to pay any more money than what they already do for water services.
“In a small community like this, it helps a lot, the county secured funds so they don’t have to pay for those improvements and by default the residents won’t pay for those improvements.” said the director of the county’s housing and community development department Esperanza Colio.
