Document Description
This project involves construction of a Water Well within Farmersville city limits. The planned location of the new well is on City property located north of Walnut Avenue and west of Ventura. The well will be located on a 5,432 sq. ft. lot that was dedicated with the Sierra Woods Phases 1-3 Final Map. The new well will be constructed in 3 phases. The first phase will be to drill a test hole to confirm groundwater levels, acceptable water quality and estimated water rates. The test hole is expected to be drilled to a depth of approximately 500'. The second phase is the drilling and development of the new well. This phase will set the well's casing pipe and perforation in the pipe to produce water. The final step will be to set a pump on the casing pipe in order to meet demands in the water system. The pump will be supplied with a diesel backup generator, fencing, security equipment, controls, and associated piping to connect to the existing water system. This project will include additional pipe crossings at the railroad crossing at Farmersville Boulevard to increase system pressure and look at connection backup generators to existing well sites that do not currently have backup generators.
