[ARCHIVED] Congresswoman Torres, Chino Mayor, and City Council Announce $2 Million in Federal Funding for Wate

Congresswoman Torres, Chino Mayor, and City Council Announce  $2 Million in Federal Funding for Wate

Water treatment infrastructure in the City of Chino just got $2 million dollars stronger, with a check presented by Congresswoman Norma Torres (CA-35) to Chino Mayor Eunice Ulloa and the Chino City Council.   

“I am proud that through my work on the U.S. House Appropriations Committee the City of Chino received $2,000,000 in community project funding to re-open two City-owned water facilities and construct a new water treatment plant. These facilities will provide clean and safe drinking water to our community. Congratulations!” stated Congresswoman Torres.  

Congresswoman Torres secured the funds as part of the Fiscal Year 2023 Congressional Community Projects Funding appropriation. The money will be used to help complete a new treatment plant for City of Chino Wells 4 and 6. By reinstating the two wells, the City’s need to purchase water from other sources will be reduced by half.   

“Water is the essence of life, and in a growing community like Chino, it is imperative that we have the water infrastructure in place to serve our current and future residents,” said Mayor Ulloa. “These funds will help us put in place critical infrastructure that will reduce our reliance on other water sources and ensure access to safe and clean local water, reducing the environmental impacts and costs of importing water.”  

This project is currently in the pre-design phase. The completed treatment facility will be located at Fourth and Carter Streets, adjacent to the Chino Public Works Services Yard and Chino Valley Independent Fire District Station 61.
