Document Description
The Project would allow for the construction of a new groundwater well for the City of Fowler. The groundwater well is intended to supplement the City's water supply system and provide additional drought resiliency for the City. The Project, which would be designed to produce a minimum desired 1,200 gpm that is consistent with the existing City production well yields in the area, would increase the City's potable water supply. Upon completion of well drilling and necessary zone testing it is expected that the well would be constructed at a depth of approximately 720 feet. The well will be drilled and constructed to comply with the requirements of the State Water Resources Control Board- Division of Drinking Water (DDW). The new groundwater well will be constructed on an approximately 0.5-acre site owned by the City in southwest Fowler. The Project site is currently two parcels that will be merged into one lot prior to Project construction. The site was previously utilized as a stormwater retention pond, the pond will be backfilled and graded prior to well construction activities. For purposes of biological and cultural surveys, the Area of Potential Effect (APE) includes the approximately 0.5-acre property and an additional 50-foot buffer to include the large trees adjacent to the property. The total area of the APE is approximately 1.4 acres.
