Document Description
Nuevo Water Company (WC) has proposed to convert an existing agricultural well into a municipal water source to reduce the amount of water purchased from the Eastern Municipal Water District. The well was orginally drilled and completed in October 1984. Nuevo WC purchased the well on February 19, 2009. Upon completion of ownership transfer the Nuevo WC rehabilitated the well and installed a new 200hp vertical pump. The project includes approximately 2,200 linear feet of new 10-inch diameter PVC located within the public right-of-way connecting the well to the existing Nuevo WC water distribution system, and a 12.5% sodium hypochlorite disinfection system.
