A group of adults and a few youngsters yesterday stood inside the Kings Canyon water treatment center to get the good news that Carson City is getting a big shot in the arm. Uncle Sam and other supporters also will be pushing big plans to increase water capacity to keep Carson City “On the Grow.”
City Staff described the year-to-year reality that water from the sky has been rather lean lately which motivates not only Carson City’s need for more water, it’s a problem all over the country. It certainly motivated the city’s public works leaders to acquire a goodly amount of federal support for the plan and soon learned that a dramatic expansion in water treatment is just around the corner with lots of money coming in from Washington DC. over the next 18 months.
