AVEK Awarded Over $1.23 Million in Grants for Proposed Antelope Valley Projects

According to the Antelope Valley Times, June 30, 2020, Antelope Valley-East Kern Water Agency (AVEK) received notice from the California Department of Water Resources that AVEK was awarded $1,231,208 in Proposition 1 grant funding for two of the Agency’s proposed projects. An award in the amount of $881,208 was received for AVEK’s South-North Intertie Pipeline Phase II Project (SNIP PH II). The funding award for SNIP PH II, which requires AVEK to contribute matching funds, will support the construction of a major potable water pipeline intertie between the Agency’s newly constructed Westside Water Bank and the Quartz Hill Water Treatment Plant. The primary purpose of this intertie, which includes the construction of a 6.5-mile transmission pipeline and a high lift pump station, is water supply reliability. Total project costs for SNIP PH II are estimated at $26,000,000.
