Chico Minerals Water Gets $5M to $10M in U.S. Grant Program
Posted On July 15, 2021
The California Public Utilities Commission announced Monday that it has awarded $5.4 million in grants to two Chico companies for water projects in the U.K. and U.N. The Chico Mineral Water company and the British Water and Wastewater Authority (BWWA) received the grants to start working on a water treatment plant and wastewater treatment system.
Both companies are also working on other water treatment projects.
The BWWA awarded $2.5 million in a $10 million grant to a company that will be constructing a water and wastewater facility to treat wastewater and produce potable water.
The money will help to pay for a total of about $10.4m in water and waste treatment projects for the British government, the BWWA said in a statement.
Chico’s project will take advantage of a $7.4 billion contract between the two countries to purchase water and sewage treatment and treatment plants from the BWVA, the state-owned utility.
Chino said it is also looking to partner with a third company in developing a new wastewater treatment plant.
