Project

Big Horn Municipal Wells
Sacramento County Water Agency, California

West Yost provided design services for a new 6,000 gpm groundwater supply in Sacramento County. Typical production depths in the area yield groundwater with arsenic concentrations that can approach or exceed the 10-µg/l federal Maximum Contaminant Level (MCL). Deeper zones can contain concentrations of manganese, iron and other constituents that exceed secondary MCLs and can require treatment. Groundwater from the wells meets all drinking standards. The wells were designed and constructed to enable sealing of zones that may be affected by water quality changes in the future.
