Poway Receives $1 Million in Federal Funding for Water Treatment Plant

Poway officials on Monday received $1 million in federal funding for the largest capital improvement program in the city’s 40-year history — an eventual replacement of the city’s water treatment reservoir.

Rep. Scott Peters, D-San Diego, joined Poway Mayor Steve Vaus and Shadi Sami, principal civil engineer for the city’s Public Works Department, in the announcement.

The Lester J. Berglund Water Treatment Plant clearwell, Poway’s 10-million-gallon treated water storage reservoir, was built in 1964.
