This is our third public meeting to discuss the proposed emergency groundwater well on Speers Road.
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
In the event of a catastrophic emergency
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
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
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.
You are welcome to join in on the discussion to learn more about the process.
