Cabinet Mountain Water gets $2-million grant

The Idaho Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) Thursday announced the award of $30,304,970 in construction grants to nine drinking water and wastewater systems, including Cabinet Mountain Water District. These construction projects are funded from American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) funds that Governor Brad Little directed to DEQ in 2022.

“Water is our most valuable resource, and we absolutely must keep up the infrastructure to ensure water is clean and plentiful for this generation and future ones," Little said. "That is why we made historic investments in water quality and quantity this year as part of my ‘Leading Idaho’ plan,” Governor Little said. “These investments also could keep your property taxes low. Property taxes are determined locally but the investments we made in water and other infrastructure needs at the state level help relieve the burden on local government to cover costs of projects, improving the chances property owners won’t be burdened with the costs.”

Cabinet Mountain Water District in Boundary County was awarded $2,000,000 to supplement material and labor cost overruns association with their existing project, which consists of improvements to existing water tanks, booster stations, one of the current well facilities and transmission and distribution lines.
