Project: Alameda County Water District Well Destruction Construction Project

Description: The Well Destruction Project proposes the destruction of four legacy irrigation wells in the western section of the Niles Cone Groundwater Basin that appear to be acting as direct pathways for brackish water to enter into active water production aquifers. Destruction of the wells will help eliminate the source of chlorides in the lower aquifers and minimize the threat to the Mowry Wellfield.
