PASKENTA, Calif. - The town of Paskenta got funding approved to haul water in from out of town after a recent scare left residents fearful that the town would run out of water. 

The town received word on Sept. 7 that they were approved for grant funding to hire a water hauler.

Tehama Transport uses water tanks to bring in about 2,500 gallons of water each trip from the city of Corning. 

This isn't the first time that the town has had to share water with Corning, according to Janet Zorning, district secretary for Paskenta Community Services. 

The city of Corning has its own municipal water system, and every year they need water they have to draw up a new contract. 

The crisis started when a creek, which is the town's main source of water, dried up due to weather conditions. This left residents fearful that the town would completely run out of water. 

Although funding has been granted to haul water, the Paskenta Board of Directors is still urging residents to conserve water as much as possible. 

In a bulletin, the board put water restrictions on residents to limit them to 50 gallons per day per person per household. Additionally, the hauled water is to be used in the household only. Water is not allowed to be used to water outside plants.
