Present Land Use
Land uses vary from residential to floodway.
Document Description
The proposed well has been drilled and tested and will be converted to a production well that is expected to yield 60 gpm but to be active 56% of the time such that it would be equivalent to yielding 34 gpm on average. The proposed well would thus yield 54.8 acre-feet/year. The development of the well will take approximately 90 days, of which 6 to 10 days would include 24 hour drilling activity for casing and gravel pack installation and well performance testing.
