19-485BPU 15.1Freeway Well Planning ProjectBPU-Agenda ItemFREEWAY WELL PLANNING PROJECT Santa Rosa Water is conducting a study of the City’s “Freeway Well” on Cleveland Avenue in Santa Rosa. For almost 30 years, the City used the Freeway Well to sustainably provide approximately one million gallons of water per day to its customers. However, in the 1980s staff discovered during routine water quality testing that groundwater below the Freeway Well site had become contaminated with volatile organic compounds (VOCs) from chemicals and solvents used at other properties in the area. The Freeway Well has not been used since that time. The City is interested in seeing if it’s feasible to rehabilitate the well or replace it. This project is funded in part by a Proposition 1 grant for groundwater protection and/or cleanup from the State Water Resources Control Board. The grant requires the City to hold a publicly noticed meeting to inform the general public about the project and receive their comments. This staff briefing meets that requirement and also serves as an update the Board on the status of this project. The Board may discuss this item a   Not available Video Video
