H2O Sys. Num.: 1510054
Water Source: GW
Active Wells Count: 6
Wells Issues?: XXXXX
Issues: Fluoride violation-Fluoride level in the newly developed well necessary to maintain increasing demand are above allowable MCL of 2 mg/L-Water provided by the system exceeds the allowable MCL of fluoride. Blending with another well does not bring fluoride

Potential Solutions: Reduce fluoride levels by blending with the existing wells that have fluoride levels below the MCL.-Install a water treatment plant to correct excessive MCL of fluoride. Plant will be a stand alone package unit. Treatment system will require construction of evaporation ponds to allow disposal of treatment medium. Interconnecting pipelines between the treatment plant into the distribution system and to the evaporation ponds need to be constructed. One storage tank is deteriorated with approximately 30% of the interior lining missing. We propose to remove the deteriorated tank and an adjacent small tank and replace with one large tank to increase water system storage. Drill a new well to replace a well that has failed, to increase system capacity and allow additional blending to reduce fluoride MCL. Mechanically clean approximately 22,000 linear feet of main distribution pipe lines to remove sediment and contaminant buildup and assure maximum flow volume.-Due to the lack of control over customer usage, PPMWC would like to replace all the flat rate services with radio read water meters. The tasks include disconnecting each flat rate service from the system and installing the meter, meter box, and transmitter for each service and reconnecting to the PPMWC system and the customer system.
