Water Plant 1 Water Well Drilling Operation

The contractor drilling the water well at Water Plant #1 has resumed 24 hour a day operations this week.  This work is anticipated to continue until Monday, November 20th.  Any remaining work will then be performed during daylight hours until the new pump is installed in mid-December.  The installation and testing of the new pump may require 24 hour a day servicing depending on any issues with the pump and associated equipment.

We apologize for the inconvenience during this operation.

Water Plant 1 Activity

The District will begin drilling a new water well at Plant 1 along Mason Road in the near future.  The drilling operation will be a 24-hour a day operation so some noise and lights from the operation will be noticed by residents along Texana Way that are in close proximity to the water plant.  The drilling and associated work is expected to take approximately 10-14 days.  The new water well will replace the existing well which has lost deliverability over the years due to downhole issues.  The existing well will continue to be in operation while the new well is drilled and the well is completed so service to the community will not be compromised.  The new well will be connected to the system after it meets all of the required government testing.  At that time the existing well will be removed from the system.
