- Vincent Well Foundation Stabilization Project
- The City of San Bernardino Municipal Water Department (Department) is proposing to fortify the slope surrounding the Vincent Well infrastructure by installing gabion baskets within the subsurface adjacent to the well, in a horseshoe shape encompassing approximately 0.38 acre. The well and well house are situated at approximately 2,309 feet mean sea level (msl), slightly above the low flow channel in Cajon Wash. Significant storm flows over the past several years have damaged the slope around the well house. Rip rap was placed in 2017 to protect it from future storms, however, a permanent solution is required. The proposed construction area is anticipated to be approximately 600 feet long by 600 feet wide, or approximately 8 acres, but the direct work will occur within approximately 20 feet of the existing well. Equipment staging and material storage will be located in a designated approximately 2-acre area out of the creek approximately 1,700 feet northeast of the well construction site. The Project improvements will face north, to prevent the erosion as the water in the wash travels south, downstream. Access to the proposed Project site will be via an existing graded, unimproved access road that provides access from the west side of Cajon Boulevard through the wash, to the Vincent Well.
