Fire Protection Improvements:

In July 2014, improvements to the San Pareil water distribution system, reservoir and pump station were completed. The improvements provided key upgrades to aging infrastructure, water storage, and flows that now meet requirements for fire protection purposes. The Fire Service Area serves ALL San Pareil property owners and is financially supported by all property owners. A copy of the letter received from the Fire Underwriters Survey confirming the new fire insurance grading can be downloaded in the Reports section of this website, below.

Water Treatment Improvements:

The construction project to add Ultra Violet (UV) Disinfection to the San Pareil Water System is currently underway. The San Pareil Water Service Area was awarded $697,200 under the Clean Water and Wastewater Fund towards this improvement. This represents 83% of the estimated $840,000 budget required to design and install UV disinfection.

The remaining $142,800 (17% of the estimated budget) will be covered via tax increases. Water Service Area owners will have the option of either paying one lump sum amount or paying smaller amounts over 5 years.

More details will be given on this webpage as they become available.
