Plant #146 Well Project
NOE - Notice of Exemption
The existing well had an original pumping capacity of about 2,000 gpm. The well is presently experiencing problems with its casing and, as a result, its pumping capacity has been reduced to less than 1,300 gpm. EVWD is proposing to develop a new well at Plant #146 with an estimated 1,500 -2,000 gpm pumping capacity. The existing well at Plant #146 will either be used as a backup well, or will be refurbished. Because the wells will be located about 100 to 120 feet apart, the two wells will not be in full production at the same time and total water production levels. The purpose of the projects is to provide EVWD with an adequate supply of high quality drinking water.
