Document Description
The 2017 Santa Ana Water Master Plan (Tetra Tech 2018) water system analysis identified low pressures along the border of the Low and High Zones adjacent to the Interstate 5 Freeway. These low-pressure deficiencies were located in the northeastern portion of the Low Zone on the south side of Interstate 5 between East 17th Street and East 1st Street. To resolve these low-pressure deficiencies, the City is proposing to install a new water supply well and construct ancillary facilities in the vacant lot at the northwest corner of East Washington Avenue and Penn Way. This lot is located approximately 340 feet southeast of the City’s Elevated Water Tank. The disturbed surface area for the construction of the Washington Avenue Well facility and associated pipeline is expected to be approximately 0.75 acres. Construction is anticipated to begin in the second quarter of 2022 and continue until the third quarter of 2023. Once operational, the potential production capacity of the Washington Avenue Well is expected to range from 2,500 to 3,000 gallons per minute.
