Council approves changes to well
GRANDVIEW - Jeff Louman of Huibregtse, Louman Associates,
Inc., talked to Council members Tuesday night about changes to the city's well
Louman said the original plan for the project was to drill a
well to replace well seven, which traditionally has high nitrate levels and
only pumps at 190 gallons a minute. The water rights for the well is for 325
gallons a minute.
Louman said in drilling the new well a water supply was
found with lower nitrate levels. However, the new well only has a pumping
capacity of 80 gallons per minute. He also noted that it has been discovered
that by raising the pump in the old well, its capacity was increased up to the
water rights level of 325 gallons a minute.
Louman suggested to Council that water from the new well be
blended with water from the original well to lower nitrate levels and maximize
the city's water right.
