The City of Sanger is going to get $4 million from the state to help with much needed water projects.
The windfall will be used to offset the cost of a large water storage tank, construction of a new water well and to help the unincorporated area south of Sanger known as "Tombstone" with its water supply problem.
That's according to a City of Sanger press release, which continues, "These allocations are a part of a total of $15 million allocated to Southern Central Valley communities to strengthen and support water supply in these communities. The City would like to thank the Governor's Office as well as the State Legislature for its recognition of the need for this funding in Sanger. Moreover, the City would like to thank newly-elected State Senator Melissa Hurtado for her strong support of these funds in the State Budget; without Senator Hurtado's commitment to the Central Valley this allocation would not have been possible."
