Idyllwild, CA, September 04, 2012 --(PR.com
)-- The Stonewood Canyon Estates community is seeking grant funding opportunities to ensure a constant, clean water supply for its residents. The community s in distress due to the unique circumstances of its residents.
Stonewood consists of just six year round households and most are lower income or retired and the aging water system has experienced failures several times over the last five years. This past May, several of the residents were without water for two weeks.
The community has been in discussion with the local water district, the but the cost is prohibitive: it will cost approximately $300,000 to convert to the new water supply and the association has less than $30,000 in reserves. There is a proposed assessment of $12,000 per household, about equal to the permanent residents' annual income. According to an article in the Idyllwild Town Crier, failure of the 40-year old water system is imminent and would leave the entire community uninhabitable and unsalable.
