Document Description
The City of Downey proposes to implement two new water wells as a method of improving water supply reliability within its service area. The two wells (Well Nos. 27 and 28) would include the following primary components: a well drilled to approximately 1,500 feet below ground surface; a 660 sf building consisting of a well room, chemical area, and electric room; a 400-horsepower electric pump; emergency generator backup equipment; flow meters, and pipelines. Both wells would have aquifer storage and recovery (ASR) capabilities, which would allow the injection and storage of excess imported Metropolitan Water District of Southern California (MWD) water and/or recycled water in the local aquifer. Additionally, the Well No. 28 site would include an approximately 330 sf addition to an existing administrative office building that would house Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) equipment to control/monitor the groundwater well system within the City of Downey. The proposed improvements at the project sites would occur in two primary phases; demolition and drilling following by equipping. Construction is anticipated to begin in spring 2015 and would last approximately 17 to 20 months.
