The Village has received an updated installation schedule from Layne-Christensen for the re-installation of the well #3 pipe.
Pump repairs for the well have been ongoing for the past several weeks. Reconstruction of the damaged bowl for the pump is expected to be completed during the middle of this week and epoxy coating of the well pipe should be completed by the end of this week.
The well rig and pump will be moved back on site the week of November 9th at which time work to clean the liner and televise the well will begin. Installation of the well pipe and testing of the pump will take place after that with the target completion date of November 13th.
Please note that unforeseen circumstances may result in timelines being shifted. Updated information will be posted when it is available.
Site mobilization begins today at well #3. A brush cleaning of the well shaft liner will commence and then be re-televised. The well pipe will then be set following the cleaning. Work is anticipated to be completed by the end of this week, but is dependent upon the final cleaning process. Re-activation of the well may be between 11/13 to 11/18 depending upon final test results for water quality.
Please note that the current work is on the well that is currently offline for maintenance and should not have any direct impact upon current water quality. Well #1 will continue through this week to supplement distribution as needed.
Due to high winds crews are unable to perform work today by hoisting and lifting the well pipe. The overall completion schedule has been delayed by one day.
