project Updates

  • The development of a production well field at the Church Road area is feasible. The water supply situation for the Chapman Creek System would be significantly improved by the development of a well field.
  • Additional efforts are required to confirm the feasibility of the development of production wells at the Gray Creek area.
  • A proposal for 2020 Budget is being considered to drill more test wells at other locations.
