- Phillipsville Community Services District Water System Improvements
- The project applicant is proposing to improve some of the current water distribution infrastructure that supplies customers served by the PCSD. The project would remedy existing water quality issues from a spring source that serves some customers of the district and provide for necessary system redundancy in case of emergency. The project would also include the installation of new storage tanks and distribution infrastructure to reduce inefficiencies and potentially unsafe conditions due to potential leaks, landslides, and/or contamination of water from the spring source. Most residents in the district are served by an existing well, and the project would include digging a second well to ensure redundancy and a consistent water supply. Further, the project would include a booster pump that 3 Phillipsville Community Services District Water System Improvements would allow residents served by the spring to also have access to a secondary water source (i.e., the well). The connection of the booster pump and well source to the remaining residents currently served by the spring would also enable the construction of fire hydrants to protect homes, wildlands, and infrastructure on the higher terrain of the district, which is also part of the proposed project. A water supply suitable for fire suppression does not currently exist in the higher-elevation portions of the district. An overview of the proposed improvements is provided in Figure 3. Phillipsville’s population density has not changed since the 2009 project. The project is not designed for future growth of the district.
