Document Description
January 2018, Quincy Community Services District and East Quincy Services District consolidated to become the American Valley Community Services District. The 2001 QCSD Master Water Plan identified: 1. Pressure deficiencies within the QCSD Main Pressure Zone during high demand periods. 2. 17,000 ft of old water main that required replacement. AVCSD desires to address the pressure deficiencies within the Quincy Main Pressure Zone, and while QCSD has replaced a majority of these mains, some remain problematic. 3. Since the MWP, Quincy's Coburn Well has run dry, and Quincy's primary water source, the Norton Well, is contaminated with MTBE. QCSD has had to rely heavily on its intertie with EQSD. As such, AVCSD desires to develop a new well near the existing High School Well. 4. Quincy High Pressure Zone is provided water from the Claremont Spring; however, recently QCSD has struggled with positive coliform results necessitating cessation of use. During these times, QCSD has employed a makeshift booster pumping facility to provide water to the high pressure zone. Currently, the high pressure zone does not have any storage capacity other than the minimal volume contained in the 4-ft diameter tower that diverts water into the pressure zone; therefore, a water storage tank in this pressure zone is a high priority. 5. AVCSD has agreed to pursue a study to evaluate a potential connection to Feather River College based on recommendation from DDW engineers.
