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.
