Please vote "yes" on the Wickiup Water District Bond issue. Our most precious resource is water, and our water system needs up grading. Stimulus money has been applied, and 50 percent of the loan can be forgiven. The additional $1 million will help upgrade our system with a 10-inch water line on part of Old Highway 30, Koppisch Road and a 600,000 gal storage tank to balance water flow between our two water sources.

The new 10-inch water line provides increased water flow and includes fire hydrants to be placed along Koppisch Road for fire suppression. The new storage tank will provide water during daily peak water usage, during summer low water flow in the creeks and emergency back up water.
