Potential Solutions: An analysis of two options would allow GCWD to evaluate these three wells that have exceeded the MCL in arsenic and remediate GCWD problem. Initially zone testing would be requested to determine where good quality water is found. If good water quality is found, you would zone blocked off the bad areas. This would keep out the bad water in the well. If it is determined there are not any areas were there is good water, then it would be recommend to build a new well possibly with the existing well site or perhaps new well site. A new well would be favorable over arsenic treatment due to the high cost and long-tern maintenance and operation of an arsenic treatment. These options would have to be analyzed in order to determine the best method. Through this process, opportunities will be sought after to provide GCWD with short-term answers while determining options that will save the GCWD money while looking to address the long term requirements.
