Project: Mountain House SD Well Replacement - Planning Project

Description: The Mountain House Elementary School District operates and maintains the Mountain House Elementary School public water system (the School) in the County of Alameda. The School serves approximately 74 students, faculty, and staff. The School’s facilities include one groundwater well (Well No. 1), chlorination equipment, pressure tanks, and piping. The Well No. 1 is no longer producing water since its well casing collapsed on November 20, 2015. The School installed two 800-gallon poly tanks to provide hauled water for basic sanitation. In addition, the School is providing bottled water for potable use. Prior to the well casing collapsed, the groundwater produced from Well No. 1 exceeded the maximum contaminant level of total coliform, arsenic, and hexavalent chromium. The planning project will identify a new source and infrastructure improvements to meet the drinking water standards. The project includes the followings: preparing an engineering report, developing plans and specifications for a test well, drilling a test well, developing final plans and specifications for the selected construction project, and preparing environmental documentation. Preparation of TMF assessment would be subject to SWRCB approval during the planning project.
