WELL 59

 

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 May 2015.  The well is scheduled to be completed and in operation by the summer of 2017.

WELL 58

Construction is underway for Anaheim Public Utilities’ new high-capacity potable water well (Well No. 58), located in the Canyon Business Center.   This well will be part of the existing City well field at Anaheim Lake.  The well has been designed to produce the highest quality potable water practical; the well will replace two existing shallow wells which are both at the end of their useful life. Groundwater produced from this well will be stored in the new 4 million gallon water tank at the Linda Vista Complex. 

This project is done in two phases, with the first phase consisting of drilling the well and the proper destruction of the two old shallow wells; 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 for this project started in April 2012 and is scheduled to be completed and in operation by the winter of 2014.

LA PALMA COMPLEX

Anaheim Public Utilities has begun with the initial steps of refurbishing the La Palma Complex. This facility serves the residences and businesses of Central and West Anaheim, providing water supply and peak pumping capacity to fight fires and meet maximum day water demands. The existing facilities include two water storage reservoirs and a pump station that were constructed in the mid 1950’s. The project is starting with a study to evaluate alternatives to meet current and future needs, while taking into consideration earthquake safety, reliability, and backup power.  To meet future water demands in this area, planning of this project includes a water storage volume of four million gallons and pumps with a total capacity of over 14 million gallons per day.  Construction is anticipated to begin 2016.
