Yuma City Council Agrees To Sell Potable Drinking Water To Marine Corps

The Yuma City Council has agreed to sell water to the Marine Corps Air Station in Yuma.  The Council on Wednesday approved a proposal to sell the station potable drinking water while the base upgrades their water facility over the next 18 to 24-months.

The Yuma Sun says the city will sell the water at a cost of $1.49 per 100 cubic feet. That translates to about $119,000 a month. The water will be available through the newly constructed Agua Viva Water Treatment Plant. The diversion of water to MCAS is not expected to affect customers.
