H2O Sys. Num.: 1510051
Water Source: GW
Active Wells Count: 3
Wells Issues?: XXXXX
Issues: Flouride issues-Current wells are in marginal compliance with MCL's for uranium and fluoride, if an existing well exceeds a primary compliance it must be shut down, then there is not enough capacity for existing system.-Not enough storage in the Lebec Zon

Potential Solutions: Construction of a new well with a capacity of 250 gpm to meet current and future demands.The project would provide additional storage capacity at the Lebec Tank site. It would consist of the addition of a 100,000 gallon tank at the existing Lebec Tank site.The project would consist of retrofitting important well sites or booster pump stations with generator receptacles and a portable generator mounted on a trailer.The project would provide additional storage capacity for the system. It would consist of a 250,000 gallon storage tank that would be connect to the distribution system by 6,000 Lineal feet of 8-inch diameter water main. In addition a booster pump would be installed to deliver water.Demolish the current 40,000 gallon tank and replace it with a 250,000 gallon tank. Because the tank has the highest elevation of the system it could also feed the lower elevation zones.Approximately 3,200 lineal feet of 3-inch pipeline would be replaced with 6-inch diameter water main.the installation of a Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) system would allow operators to monitor on a computer selected parameters including tank levels, pumping flow rates, pressure, well pump status, etc. This will reduce the time operators have to check on the status of the distribution system and alert the operator to a potential -The project would modify the existing electrical system to provide a separate starter for the booster pump-The Project would be an interconnection of approximately 1,600 feet of 6 inch water main and a pressure reducer valve assembly.-The installation of three flow meters at each of the Districts source wells.The installation of three flow meters at each of the Districts source wells.-The project would consist of adding a booster pump to add additional MDD capacity.-The project consists of the replacement of 3,500 feet of 8-inch diameter pipe in Lebec Road. This pipeline is the main backbone that delivers water to the older areas of the District. The other project components include isolation valves, connections with laterals and installation of 4 new fire hydrants assemblies.The implementation of this project will greatly reduce the potential for pipeline breaks and leaks. Ultimately the project could save the District up to 10 AF per year in water losses. More importantly, potential contamination of the distribution system is reduced thereby ensuring compliance with drinking water standards. Also, outages due to breakages will be less likely to occur resulting in better water service to the customers.-The existing 6-inch main can be parralleled by 3,500 lineal feet of 8-inch pipe. The project includes analysis of the existing pipe network and construction of new mains as required to deliver adequate fire supply
