The Supplier serves 230 customers through 66 connections in Madera County. Teaford Meadows is located west of the community of North Fork along Road 223. There is no treatment plant for the Supplier?s water source of two hard rock wells and one storage tank. The water system distributes water containing arsenic that exceeds the State and Federal primary maximum contaminant levels. In addition, the existing wells cannot meet the needs of the water system due to declining water levels. This problem is ranked in Category G. A pump test and groundwater study will be conducted at Madera County Maintenance District No. 58, Sierra Highlands to evaluate if the existing sources have acceptable water quality and can provide the needed capacity to serve the Teaford Meadows district area. If the water pumping analysis results from the existing well indicate that the water meets the drinking water standards and produce the sufficient capacity to satisfy the water demands, the Supplier will consolidate with Sierra Highland by equipping the well and interconnecting the two water systems with a transmission pipeline, pumping station and appurtenances. If the water quality results indicate the water quality is not acceptable and there is inadequate supply to serve Teaford Meadows, then the Supplier will construct a new well and storage tank within either district to provide additional supply and to allow for blending of the water with the existing wells. If the Supplier is unable to construct a new well that supplies water that meets all drinking regulations, a new well and treatment plant will be constructed.
