Grace Way Well Project
The Scotts Valley Water District (SVWD) proposes to construct and operate one new groundwater extraction well on SVWD-owned property at 5297 Scotts Valley Drive, Scotts Valley, California (APN 022-031-13). The well would be 1,000 feet deep into the Lompico and Butano aquifers of the Santa Margarita Groundwater Basin. The primary purpose of the Project is to provide redundancy and allow for increased extraction capacity to meet SVWD customer water demand as older wells reach the end of their useful life and are taken out of service, as well as strengthen the SVWD’s ability to meet potential demand to deliver water to neighboring agencies under drought or emergency conditions in support of regional water supply planning efforts. Additionally, the Project would provide drought resiliency by enabling the SVWD to shift groundwater pumping away from areas where the greatest Lompico aquifer groundwater level declines have historically occurred in south Scotts Valley. The well would have a design capacity of 600 gallons per minute and could be operated continuously or for shorter intervals, depending on water demand.
