Document Description
This project will replace an aging agricultural deepwell facility known as DW1 which has declined in capacity and usefulness because of age to reinstate capacity within the District's Weyand pipeline system, and supplement flow from another nearby agricultural deepwell, DW2. The deepwell being replaced, DW1, is located approximately 1,000 feet south of Midway Road, and approximately 2,000 feet away from the proposed deepwell. As part of the project, a new well will be drilled, and a new well pump and the well will be connected to the existing Weyand Pipeline to add capacity to the existing system. DW1 will be left in service until it declines further for use in emergency conditions to benefit the capacity of the system until the District deems it no longer usable, at which point it will be capped and abandoned according to County requirements.

Notice of Exemption

Exempt Status
Categorical Exemption
Type, Section or Code
Section 15301(b)
Reasons for Exemption
This project is categorically exempt because it is a replacement of an existing facility pumping water from the same aquifers that will serve the same purpose to provide public utility service, in this case agricultural irrigation water. There is no expansion of use beyond existing conditions, and this is considered maintenance of the existing agricultural well system of the District utilized to provide capacity and water quantities in addition to surface water deliveries in the area.
