Document Description
Recent drought conditions in the Idyllwild area have reduce the Idyllwild Water District's well production such that the District has determined it is necessary to located additional well sites to maintain adequate public water supplies. To identify locations for new wells that have the greatest potential to produce significant quantities of water without interfering with existing wells, the District evaluated geologic literature and the mapping of sedimentary materials in the area. The District also had an electro-seismic survey, or National Water Survey (NWS), conducted at each test well site. Based on the data obtained from the field NWS and the literature review, including geologic comparisons and the known yield of existing wells, two test well sites were selected. The proposed project is the drilling of two test wells, at two separate locations, in Idyllwild to evaluate the potential water production capacity at each site. The test well locations have been selected based upon water bearing potential and permission to drill on the property only. The results of the test wells will be used in the consideration of future water production wells that would be evaluated as a discrete or separate action under CEQA.
