Potential Solutions: The project consists of the installation of a new 400 gpm production well to replace the Iriart Well. The proposed well would be located on land owned by the Tehachapi Cummings County Water District (TCCWD). Based on existing hydrogeologic information the estimated depth of the proposed well is 500-550 feet. The casing size would be 12 inches with 200 feet of well screen. The pump would most likely be a submersible type pump. Other project components would include continuous chlorination equipment, a small building to house the well and equipment, and 300 linear feet of 6-inch diameter pipeline to connect to the existing water system.The well would be interconnected for emergency use to the TCCWD water system and the City of Tehachapi. By providing this interconnection, if water service was disrupted for either system, the District could provide a backup water supply.-Develop and construct a system of wells in our nonadjudicated area, while continuing to increase our water rights. Other - Design/Construction-Construct a 1mg storage tank. Other - Design/Construction-Construct 4 new wells. Other - Design/Construction-The project consists of the installation of a package water treatment system for manganese removal. The method of removal would be by oxidation, precipitation and filtration through the use manganese greensand. The treatment system would include a chemical feed unit, pressure filter, and backwash system including pump and tank. Because of the freezing temperatures in the Tehachapi Mountains, the system would be housed within a small building. With the installation of this system, Well B would be able to meet the Secondary MCL for manganese, and will increase the supply capacity and reliability of the District water system.
