Operation of JG Boswell Tomato Company Well 3 (replacement of Well 2)
Document Type
NOE - Notice of Exemption
Document Description
The State Water Resources Control Board (State Water Board) as the lead agency will be issuing a water supply permit. JB Boswell Tomato Company drilled well 3, a 1,830-gallon per minute 800-foot well, to replace well 2 a 2,000-gallon per minute 560-foot well, as the old well's casing was failing and they needed to ensure a reliable well for the operation of their business. The existing 250-horsepower pump and motor from well 2 was installed on well 3. A 12-inch wide 300-foot long line was installed to connect the well to the existing system. A 6-foot tall fence will be placed in a 900-square foot area around the well. This project will provide for the operation of the system.
