Perris North Groundwater Program

Post

The program is a long-term solution to improve groundwater quality in the Perris North Groundwater Basin, located in the Moreno Valley area. The program will not only address groundwater contamination, but it will also continue to provide a safe and reliable water supply for surrounding communities.

EMWD received a grant from the State Water Resources Control Board to fund approximately half of the project costs for its Perris North Groundwater Program. That grant is funded by the voter approved Proposition 1 Water Bond of 2014.

This project consists of drilling two groundwater wells along Ironwood Avenue between Heacock Street and Nita Drive.

Project Update:  Well drilling has been successfully completed at Well 65 and Well 66.  24-hour drilling was required to ensure the structural integrity of the well.  A project will be bid out at a later date to construct the structure, piping, and motors needed to operate the wells.  That activity will be limited to daytime work.

Project Timeline:  Winter 2020/2021 - TBD
