The City of Blaine has 10 groundwater supply wells in its potable water system that are mostly used to supplement peak water demand in the summer. As part of the city’s effort to upgrade its water system, Barr evaluated the wells and wellhouse structures. We then worked with the city to develop a plan for rehabilitating the wells and replacing aging infrastructure.
Prior to this project, each well was housed in a wellhouse and pumped either to a water treatment plant or directly to distribution. Upgrades included new wellhouses, installation of pitless adaptors, and conversion of wells to emergency standby status.
Rehabilitation of two wells is complete, while rehab on three additional wells began in Fall 2019.
