Anaheim Public Utilities is underway with another new high-capacity potable water well, Well No. 59, located at an existing well (Well No. 36) site in western part of the city, near the intersection of Cerritos Avenue and 9th Street. This well will replace the existing well which has reached the end of its useful life, and will be designed to be a high-capacity, high-quality potable water well, and will enhance the reliability to the water system.
Like other water wells, this project will be done in 2 phases, with the 1st phase consisting of drilling the well and the proper destruction of the existing old shallow well. The 2nd phase includes equipping of the new well with a pump and all associated mechanical and electrical equipment, and completing the site work.
Construction of phase 1 is scheduled to start in summer 2016. The well is scheduled to be completed and in operation by the summer of 2018.
