Document Description
The City of Solvang (City) has developed a well siting study for possible "upland" well sites to increase local water supplies to the City. Five upland well sites have been selected for study, drilling, and testing; potentially up to three of which may be future wells that would provide the City with potable water supplies to meet water demand. Construction of the Project would entail the drilling of the five well sites; each drill site would be limited to approximately 2,500 sf in size. The total number of wells to be drilled and placed into service as part of the City's water supply will depend on the individual yield achieved for each well. The City is looking to obtain a total yield for the proposed wells of 500 to 600 gallons per minute to meet potable demand needs. The associated pipeline infrastructure will be installed upon well completion and testing.
