Anaheim Public Utilities is underway with another new high-capacity potable water well (Well No. 59), located at an existing well site in western part of the city, near the intersection of Cerritos Avenue and Ninth 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 two phases, with the first phase consisting of drilling the well and the proper destruction of the existing old shallow well; the second 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 one is scheduled to start in October 2014. The well is scheduled to be completed and in operation by the spring of 2016.
HIDDEN CANYON PUMP STATION EXPANSION PROJECT
Anaheim Public Utilities has completed the expansion of Hidden Canyon Pump Station facility The work included the refurbishment of existing pump station building, replacement of pumps and motors, replacement of electrical and instrumentation systems, installation of emergency diesel generator in a separate building, removal of old engine driven pumps, installation of new entrance gate, and improvements to site landscape. The nearby Hidden Canyon water storage tank was also rehabilitated as part of this project.
Public Utilities worked with our consultant to develop a design that is both operationally functional and architecturally pleasing. The rendering at the left shows a view of the refurbished pump station building from the street.
The project will increase water supply capacities in east Anaheim, increase system reliability, and beautify the pump station site.
