Yolo County Above Ground Tank Drought Assistance
Document Type
NOE - Notice of Exemption
Document Description
Yolo County will provide temporary assistance to landowners with dry wells that are a direct result of the current Drought in California. Once an individual homeowner has reported that their well has gone dry, Yolo County OES (YCOES) and the Yolo County Flood Control and Water Conservation District (YCFCWCD) will work together to verify the well’s depth to water and the fact that the homeowner has secured a water well driller to replace the well. Once both of these facts have been confirmed, the YCFCWCD will assist the homeowner with temporary installation of an above ground tank and booster pump and will arrange for non-potable drinking water to the property for hygiene purposes. The YCOES will then provide bottled drinking water to the property based on the number of persons living on the property. Assistance will be provided while the property is on the well driller’s wait list for drilling. Once the well is successfully replaced, the property will be removed from the program and the YCFCWCD owned equipment will be re-used for another property.
