Water contract amended
Roger S. Lucas
Grand Coulee has amended its contract to supply potable water to the Bureau of Reclamation.
The council voted Tuesday night last week to alter the contract to reflect the cost of a new water meter and work the city crew did to install and calibrate the equipment.
The amount of the contract, which goes through 2022, has been raised by $3,625 to $2,231,750 for the life of the agreement.
The water comes from Grand Coulee’s own water right and is pumped and delivered by Electric City through a special agreement between the two municipalities. Grand Coulee pays Electric City for the electricity and administration cost.
