Document Description
The proposed project is the construction of a new 500-foot-deep groundwater well for the City of Yuba City. The well will produce approximately 1,500 gallons per minute and will expand the City's Water production by 2,400-acre feet per year. It is anticipated that the well will be used during periods of drought when surface water is not available. The new groundwater well will be located in the same vicinity as an existing groundwater well at the City's Water Treatment Plant (WTP) site. The well may be drilled and constructed at any location within the WTP. The tentative site for the new well is in an undeveloped landscaped area south of the westernmost backwash basin at the WTP site. Further investigation by the City will determine the best location for the proposed well. For the purpose of the Project, the area of potential effect will be the entire WTP site acreage of approximately 24.7 acres. The proposed well has an estimated life of 50 years.
