The Community Services District provided the following update on drilling test wells for its water augmentation project.
Rancho Murieta Community Services District Augmentation Well Project
Rancho Murieta Community Services District (District) is working with Dunn Environmental Inc. and Frederick Well Drilling to drill two (2) test wells in search of a potable water augmentation supply. Our goal is to find a 600 acre‐feet augmentation supply (a 372 gallon per minute well) for our potable water system. This initial work is to determine the geology of the area to see if the test wells may provide water and to obtain preliminary water samples if water is present.
The test hole borings are on the Anderson Ranch, and will be completed this week. A formal report from Dunn Environmental on the findings is due shortly thereafter.
We will continue to keep you informed on the progress of this important project. If you have any questions please call Paul Siebensohn, Director of Field Operations, at 354‐3700.
