On Friday’s (April 21) Up Close Show, host Gary Daigneault spoke with Matt Schragge, the General Manager of the Twentynine Palms Water District. Schragge was asked how new businesses and retail development in Twentynine Palms has impacted the water district, and Schragge said

“Water service has definitely gone up, I wouldn’t say in record numbers. If I had to guess 1%, 2% a year, not that much. But what’s going in Downtown, with the farmer’s market, the Downtown Business Association, Project Phoenix, Freedom Plaza, and some of the other things are just exciting. It’s fun to be a part of, it’s fun that our little water district can say, “What can we do to help out to make this an easy process?”

Schragge spoke to the future of the Twentynine Palms Water District, and its specific capacity for accommodating future businesses, saying

“We have 17 million gallons of storage. The operators are really big on keeping those fairly full. We could pretty comfortably serve ten thousand customers, and there’s room for growth.”
