Yes, that’s right. It has been 1,684 days since the water first stopped flowing from Memorial Park and Redwood Glen began the search for a potable water source. Yesterday, January 22, 2019 somewhere around 1:45 pm, Eric Lacy and Samantha Mak from the California State Water Resources Control Board gave consent to Andrew Gonsalves, Redwood Glen’s water treatment operator, and Chad Plantenberg, project coordinator, to allow the water treatment facility to provide water for Redwood Glen. Water from Hoffman and Piney Creeks is now flowing through the system providing potable water for all the residents and guests. A celebration was enjoyed by some staff and board members, along with the SRT engineering crew, by lifting a glass of . . . water.
The costs for this and the many years of hauled in water comes to well over $1.6 million. But thanks to the many, many friends of Redwood Glen who have donated to the cause, and the tightening of belts, over $1.25 million was raised to help cover the expense. The need is still great and many bills are left, needing to be paid. If you can donate, please click on the button below so Redwood Glen can continue its mission of serving all who come.
And celebrate with us. Enjoy a glass of water and think of Redwood Glen.
