We’re constructing a new deep municipal water well to better serve the residents of the City of Santa Ana. The new water well will be built within the City's existing property at 651-657 E. Washington Avenue and will optimize our capacity to deliver outstanding water services to you.

What we're doing: 

  • Constructing a well with a desired water flow capacity of 2,500 gpm

  • Installing sound walls

  • Drilling boreholes

  • Conducting geophysical surveys

  • Conducting water quality testing

  • Installing blank and louvered casings 

  • Installing well accessory tubes


  • Noise

    • Drilling (continuous 24-hour operation) ​

    • Sound walls will be installed to minimize noise disturbances to the surrounding neighborhood. 

  • Visual Impacts

    • During the well-drilling effort, 24-foot sound walls will be installed around the perimeter of the facility.
