According to Bakersfield Now on August 21st:
Peak to Peak Charter School near Pine Mountain Club is in the midst of a water crisis.
The small, rural school that serves nearly 100 students who live in the mountain communities has a broken water system that could take at least a year to fix.
Mindy Moffatt, the principal at the school, said they have to now truck water in to the school.
“We have two tanks that we are now trucking in water and paying additional funds that could have gone to the kids,” said Moffatt.
She estimated the cost to truck the water up to be up to $10,000 a year.
Moffatt said most of the water used at the school is for toilets and sinks. The students have been using bottled water to drink.
The Blues, Brews, and Barbeque Mountain Festival is benefiting the school.
“We’re selling tickets now, and trying to raise as much money as we can. We want to try to give them 75 percent of the proceeds,” said event coordinator Mike Cram.
He said tickets will be $35 in advance, $45 at the door and $15 for kids.
There will be tons of food and live bands at the event on Sept. 5 in Pine Mountain Village.
