Capital improvement projects help CHWD maintain its infrastructure and keep it up to date, increase needed capacity and continue to provide great service to its customers.
Ella Way Well Project
The Ella Way Well Project consists of the construction and operation of a municipal water supply well and pump station within the service area of CHWD. The proposed Ella Way Well is intended to provide CHWD with additional water resources for typical municipal and industrial uses. Some expected benefits of the project include:
- Enhance the reliability and redundancy of water supplies that are available to serve the CHWD’s customers.
- Serve as a source of water supply in the event of a water infrastructure or water supply emergency.
- Serve as source of water supply to help meet the CHWD’s maximum day and peak hour water supply needs.
- Provide price stability in anticipation of projected price increases for water purchases.
- Provide additional resources for fire flow requirements.
