All potable water wells require two phases to complete the facility as information obtained during the first phase is used to finalize the design of the second. A more detailed description of the improvements per phase are outlined below:
The phase I improvements that were completed in late 2000 consisted of drilling the final production well, setting the casing, installing the sanitary seal, well development, test pumping and disinfection of the new well. The phase II improvements, or site improvements to be constructed with this contract consist of installing the pump, motor, piping, electrical and chemical injection equipment, paving, fencing and all appurtenances required for the startup and successful operation of the facility.
These phase II improvements will be the second and final step required to make this facility operational and usable by the public.
