(Best Syndication News) The County of San Bernardino and the State of California will be working together on a project to improve the drinking water of Pioneertown, a small tourist destination near Yucca Valley.

Since the 1992 Lander’s Earthquake there have been problems with the water supply, according to George Watson, the Chief of Staff for County Supervisor Neil Derry. The water quality has continued to suffer since the 7.3 magnitude earthquake. The water became so bad that it is now “undrinkable.”

Last week the Board of Supervisors (BOS) voted to give the Special Districts Department $400,000 to work in conjunction with the California State Division of Drinking Waters and Environmental Management.

The Supervisor, along with his staff, worked with residents of Pioneertown to come up with a solution. The county will accept $400,000 in Proposition 84 grant funds to improve the water quality.

Proposition 84 was originally passed in 2007 to help clean rivers and other water sources. The state provides matching funds to worthy projects. Derry has been working on this project for some time.

“Though we are not at the finish line, we have reached a point in the process where we can see light at the other end of the tunnel,” Derry said. “I am bullish on the future and long-term sustainability of Pioneertown.”
