Will the City be collecting water quality samples from my well?

The City of Santa Rosa will not be collecting water quality samples as part of this project.  The intent of the project is to verify the location of privately-owned wells for compliance with recycled water use set-backs. The City has a robust well-monitoring network throughout our recycled water system.

The well-monitoring network consists of 15 shallow wells that are monitored by City staff annually to assess any potential impacts to the groundwater due to recycled water irrigation and biosolids land application. These wells have been monitored by the City for the past 30 years. There is no intention for the City to add domestic supply wells to this monitoring program.
