Document Description
The Coachella Valley Water District (CVWD) will construct a new domestic water well, Well No. 4529-1, on a developed CVWD parcel. The site is improved with rough grading, a driveway, concrete blow-off drain, and is secured by fencing. The site is surrounded by residential and commercial land uses, vacant land, and a golf course placed within the stormwater channel. Well No. 4529-1 would be connected to CVWD's existing domestic water distribution system providing water service, fire protection and maintaining adequate water pressure to the surrounding residents and businesses within the Date Palm Pressure Zone. CVWD will drill, test, case, and develop a 2,000-gallon-per-minute (GPM) domestic water well. Ground-disturbing activities include drilling of a 1,300-foot below ground surface well. The initial 900 feet of the pilot bore would be a 26-inch final well diameter, and the remaining 400 feet of pilot bore (near the surface) would be a 32-inch final well diameter. The project includes the installation of 50 feet of conductor casing, a 300-horsepower motor, 2,000-GPM pump and other aboveground and underground appurtenances complete and in place at the site location in order to tie the well and the pumping plant into CVWD' s existing domestic water distribution system. Construction will occur over the duration of approximately 14-months. All staging will occur on CVWD's fenced parcel. The project site is not located within or adjacent to a conservation area associated with the Coachella Valley Multiple Species Habitat Conservation Plan. The project will not require payment to the Coachella Valley Conservation Commission's Local Mitigation Development Fee program, as the parcel is previously developed.
