[ARCHIVED] 3rd Community Meeting for a Proposed Emergency Groundwater Well

Emergency Well 3rd Community Meeting


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 (SCWA).  In the event of a catastrophic emergency 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.

You are welcome to join in on the discussion to learn more about the process.
