Buttes Emergency Well Replacement Project

UPDATE 9/19/2022

The initial work of Phase 2 (connecting the new well to the existing system) is anticipated to take place in early to middle of October.  The next phase of work will include installation of new watermain from the new well to the existing watermain infrastructure.  The new well will not be integrated or operational until the control panels and new generator are installed and programmed in March/April of 2023.  This scope of work should NOT have any impact to the existing system operations or access to the community.  The delay in project completion is due to supply chain issues in obtaining the electrical controls and generator.  

Please contact the District if you have any questions or concerns regarding this project.

UPDATE 07/19/2022 

The development and drilling of the well has been completed.  Beginning Wednesday July 20th the well driller will be performing a 24 hour flow test on the well.  This will not result in any water restrictions but residents may notice noise from the engine being used for the pumping and flow of water from the well site.

Phase 2 of connecting the new well to the distribution system will begin with the pipe installation in late July or early August.  Unfortunately the installation of the controls and generator will not take place until closer to March 2023 due to supply chain issues.

Please contact the District if you have any questions or concerns regarding this project.
