Well #5 Update

Part of the plan for eliminating PFAS in the water supply includes upgrading well #5, which is a deep well containing no detectable PFAS. This is currently our backup well which in its existing state is only able to handle emergency needs. We are working to upgrade the well so that it will be the primary source of water for the City. The system has been cleaned and tested for flow capacity. An upgraded temporary pump is in place. We are now waiting for upgraded electrical supply so that the heavier pump will operate properly. Once online, the City's supply will be largely PFAS free. We will still have the existing shallow wells online as emergency backups. They will only run on occasion to ensure their functionality in an emergency. We will continue to work towards other solutions in order to eliminate PFAS from our system. 


The end goal is to dig two new deep wells in the City in order to supply all of the water to our customers. This goal is directed by the EPA to be funded by 3M who has been identified as the responsible party for the existence of PFAS in the Camanche water supply.
