The Mammoth Community Water District relies on both surface and groundwater to supply water to the Town of Mammoth Lakes (Town). The Town has a resident population of 8,237 and a large visitor population of up to 52,000. The surface water supply is limited by natural snowpack variability, storage capacity, and fishery bypass flow criteria incorporated in the District's water rights permit and licenses.
This project is phase one of a well rehabilitation program for District groundwater production wells. Phase one will apply well profiling technology to determine whether isolating specific aquifer levels will reduce the contaminent level inputs from those geologic layers while maintaining overall yield from the well.
