Friday, September 22, 2017

Sacramento, CA – Congressman Mike Thompson, Senator Mike McGuire, Assemblymember Cecilia Aguiar-Curry, Lake County officials, and State Agency representatives will all be on hand to celebrate a significant milestone in Lake County’s recovery from the devastating Valley and Clayton Fires by breaking ground on the $10.5 million Anderson Springs wastewater collection system, celebrating homes that will be rebuilt in the area, and  remembering the two-year anniversary of the historic blaze.

“I cannot say thank you enough for the amazing work by so many at the local, state and federal levels of government who have made these projects a reality. September 30 will be a true milestone in the recovery process from these devastating fires. We all know there is a lot more work in front of us, but we wanted to take a moment to celebrate these important investments that will help make South Lake County stronger in the years to come,” Senator Mike McGuire said.  

The event on the morning of Saturday, September 30 will be emceed by Senator Mike McGuire and will kick off with Keynote Speaker Congressman Mike Thompson. We will hear from State Assemblymember Cecilia Aguiar-Curry, Lake County Supervisors Rob Brown and Moke Simon, as well as representatives from CalFire, the State Water Board and the California Department of Emergency Services. The officials will then ceremonially “break ground” on the Anderson Springs Wastewater Collection System.

“Two years ago, the Valley Fire tore through our community, taking homes, livelihoods, and equity from thousands in our community. Today, while we still have a long way to go, I’m so proud of how we’ve been able to rally together and make significant progress in rebuilding. The Anderson Springs wastewater project is another big step towards getting our county back on its feet. Between this and the rest of the ongoing recovery efforts underway in South Lake County, I have no doubt that we will rebuild our community stronger and better than ever,” Congressman Mike Thompson said.

“The residents of Lake County are some of the most resilient people I’ve met throughout Assembly District 4.  I am honored to work alongside Congressman Thompson, Senator McGuire and the local community to help rebuild, revitalize and support economic development in Lake County,” Assemblymember Cecilia Aguiar-Curry said.

Refreshments will be provided and the community is invited to attend.
