The City has received grant funds to conduct a feasibility study for implementing a brackish groundwater desalination facility in the San Diego Formation Basin. The first step in the overall feasibility study is to construct a monitoring well to obtain data for the groundwater basin. The well would be located within a remote northeast corner of the Mount Hope Cemetery in an area with disturbed habitat. The drill pad would be an approximately 900 square feet area that may require minor grading to even out the surface. A 10-inch borehole would be drilled to a depth of approximately 1,200 foot depth. A 4-inch diameter steel well casing will be installed from the surface to the total depth of the well. Approximately 75,000 gallons per day of extracted groundwater would be discharged to the storm drain or sewer system for a period of 10 days. Erosion and sediment control would be in conformance with City Stormwater standards.
New construction of a single, small structure (well), located in a disturbed area, needed to support a feasibility study for possible future actions that have not been previously approved, adopted or funded.
