[ARCHIVED] Public Meeting for Emergency Well on Speers Road

News Flash Groundwater Well Public Meeting

Second Public Meeting for Emergency Well on Speers Road

The City of Santa Rosa is hosting a second Public Meeting on June 21, 2017 from 6pm to 8:30pm at the Rincon Valley Library to address questions regarding the City’s proposed Emergency Groundwater Well at 618 Speers Road.


What is this project?
The City of Santa Rosa is finalizing plans to evaluate site conditions at two locations to determine if the sites can support an emergency supply well.  If the site conditions are favorable, an emergency groundwater well will be installed. The two sites being evaluated are the Oakmont Treatment Plant and a newly acquired site on Speers Road. 

 
What’s the purpose?
The purpose of the project is to implement emergency wells to provide the City of Santa Rosa water in the event of an emergency or disconnection to the Sonoma County Water Agency (SCWA).


The water provided by the wells will support the City of Santa Rosa Water customers, such as hospitals, schools, nursing facilities, homes and businesses. The emergency well would be operated up to 15 days (per year), which would allow for repairs to reconnect to the SCWA transmission line.
The need for these projects was identified in the 2013 Groundwater Master Plan. Currently in the event of an emergency, the City would not be able to meet the City’s water demand.


Multiple locations are currently being investigated to install new emergency wells and to perform needed maintenance to protect the water supply at existing groundwater wells.


This project improvement will:
• Provide water to hospitals, schools, nursing facilities, homes and businesses during an emergency.
