Electric City and Grand Coulee have amended and extended their water supply agreement for 50 years.

Both city councils have agreed to the extension, and the agreement has been signed by both mayors.

Electric City provides Grand Coulee with potable water through a 16-inch inter-tie pipeline, using water from its three wells just south of city hall and by special arrangement, utilizing Grand Coulee’s water rights.

The new agreement includes the Electric City’s arsenic treatment plant and its services, the plant not having been in service yet when the original interlocal agreement was signed.

Grand Coulee has now agreed to participate in the costs of that $1.3 plant and other capital improvements or needed repairs to the level of percentage of water Grand Coulee uses.

Electric City pumps some 300 million gallons of water annually from its three wells, and, according to records, Grand Coulee draws about 75 percent of the total water pumped.

In the first quarter this year Grand Coulee paid Electric City $4,347 for water.
