Schoesler applauds loan to Basin City water district

State Sen. Mark Schoesler, R-Ritzville, is pleased that a Franklin County community will soon be able to complete an important water project.

The state Public Works Board is awarding a $495,000 loan to the Basin City Water and Sewer District, which will use the loan to complete a project in which flow meters will be installed for residents and businesses within the district.

“This is great news,” said Schoesler. “The new flow meters being installed in Basin City will allow people there to save water, which is not only good resource management, but will save taxpayers money.”    

According to Basin City Water and Sewer District Commissioner Dan Winder, the loan will allow the district to complete the project to install flow meters. The project is expected to start in late October or early November and end in January 2020.

Schoesler represents the 9th Legislative District, which covers all or part of Adams, Asotin, Franklin, Garfield, Spokane and Whitman counties.
