JC Constructors out of Meridian, Idaho are working on the facility that's needed to be replaced for quite some time. The original water facility was built in1931, and received a few updates back in 1953.
The facility will provide water to the town of Orofino by pumping it from the Clearwater River. The project is expected to last about a year and a half and cost more than $11 million. The project is being funded by a combination of loans and grants.
