Document Description
The Coachella Valley Water District (CVWD) proposes to destroy Well No. 3409-1 and redrill, test, case and develop a new 2,000 gallon-per-minute (gpm) domestic water well including the installation of a 300 horsepower motor, 2,000 gpm pump and other above-ground and underground appurtenances complete and in place at the existing Well No. 3409-1 site on CVWD property identified as Lot 325, APN 665-164-012. The purpose of the project is to replace Well No. 2409-1, which is not operating properly as a result of a structure failure. Redrilled Well No. 3409-2 would be connected to the existing domestic water system to provide water service and fire protection to meet an increasing demand in the Lower Improvement District 8 Pressure Zone. The proposed construction activities include installing 50 feet of conductor casing, drilling a pilot bore 1,300 feet below ground surface, reaming the pilot bore for 450 feet to a 32-inch final well diameter, and reaming another 800 feet of the pilot bore to a 26-inch final well diameter. All construction activities will take place at the existing Well No. 3409-1 site.
