Issuance of Permits for the Masonic Homes Well Replacement Project
Document Type
NOE - Notice of Exemption
Document Description
Masonic Homes has proposed a Project at their facility that will require permits for the destruction of the existing water well and installation of a replacement well, in the general vicinity of the old water well. ACWD is the responsible agency issuing these permits. The existing water well is being destroyed since it is no longer used and the condition of the well and location is not ideal for use for the proposed agriculture operation. The replacement water well will be approximately 395 feet deep (similar in size, design, and capacity to the existing water well) and will allow for irrigation of a 10-acre organic farm operation.
