Document Description
This project consists of drilling a well to serve as an emergency water supply for Parlin Fork Conservation Camp. The well will be approx. 200 feet in depth and will be connected to existing power and water supply systems by conduit installed in a 6-inch width by 18-in depth by 250 feet length series of trenches. The well and associated power and water lines will be installed on previously disturbed ground located adjacent to the Parlin Fork Conservation Camp Water Treatment Plant. Vegetation removal will be limited to surface plants & shrubs. Hand labor will be utilized for the trenching process. Soil removed for trenching will be back-filled and the surface covered with soil and/or gravel. A diesel-powered mobile well-drilling apparatus, with associated support vehicles, will be utilized for three to four days for the well drilling. Total project construction time is estimated at approx. 4 days. This project is necessary to insure that Parlin Fork Camp has a viable water supply. The current water system consists of a sub-surface river intake. Water flow to the intake has been diminishing due to the severe CA drought. Further reduction of water flow will force closure of Parlin Fork Camp, greatly impacting CAL FIRE's ability to maintain a force of inmate fire-fighting crews.
