A Quick Update From EPCOR Regarding The Water Supply
By, EPCOR USA
SanTan Well #1 is one of the drinking water wells we’re working to bring online. It’s an existing, but currently unused, resource in the Johnson Utilities system. This is a source of quality water that can be made operational relatively quickly, and we are moving forward with the access agreements and other tasks needed to bring this well online.
The first part of the process is to test the water in the well to make sure it meets drinking water requirements. Our team is starting that work on Monday, January 21 and you’ll see work happening at the site along Hunt Highway. Testing the pump requires releasing some water into an adjacent greenbelt/stormwater retention area.
If the tests go well, we’ll start preparing to bring the well online and serving the community by March as water usage starts to pick up again for the summer.
