Project Info

Title
East Porterville Emergency Water Supply Project
Description
Water Board is a responsible agency for this project. The SWRCB's safe drinking water state revolving fund program is providing funds for the project to DWR. Small portions of the community are currently receiving domestic water from Porterville; the majority of residents depend on predominantly shallow, private wells for their water supply. Due to the effects of the ongoing drought, a large number of these wells have gone dry, are going dry, or the water contains contaminants making it unsafe to drink. As a result, the residents of the disadvantaged community do not have a reliable supply of drinking water. DWR has identified approx 800 res properties that are in need of a reliable and sustainable solution for drinking water. In cooperation with the water board, office of emergency services, the city, and Tulare county, DWR proposes to drill up to three wells, install one water storage tank, one booster pump station, over 4 miles of a combination of mainline and distribution pipelines, and 300 fire hydrants for fire protection. Each project component would require geotechnical investigations prior to construction.
