Document Description
The Agency's Well 46 (Snow Creek) project (herein also referred to as the Project) consists of the construction and operation of one domestic groundwater production well and pumping plant on DWA's existing Snow Creek Power Plant property and connection of said well to the Snow Creek Village Reservoir via the existing Snow Creek Penstock. The well is expected to be approximately 14 to 20 inches in diameter and to extend to a depth of up to 1,500 feet below ground surface. The well is anticipated to have a capacity of up to 1,000 gallons per minute (gpm) and to operate up to approximately 90 days per year when the Snow Creek and Falls Creek surface water diversions are out of service. Water resulting from development and testing of the proposed well, and water resulting from periodic well purging during operation, will be discharged to Snow Creek via the existing 20" waste pipeline. The project location is shown on Figures 1 and 2 attached to the Initial Study.
