To help supply the City with groundwater during dry years, the City has undertaken a groundwater well rehabilitation program. With the recent drought declaration, the City is accelerating this program and is also bringing back online five groundwater wells that have previously been out-of-service. Due to the length of time the wells have not been in use, City staff needs to flush each well site in order to collect water quality samples needed to determine if the wells can be re-established. To complete the flushing work, City staff will be connecting temporary piping from the existing well sites and draining large quantities of water to the nearest drainage point at each site.  Flushing of wells could last more than 24 continuous hours for each site.

The flushing of the wells does not use existing treated water but uses groundwater not yet being used in the system.
