Staff Summary
* There is a need to add a new well to support the consolidation efforts for the Oak Terrace and West Oak Middle water systems.
* In January of 2021, the County Board awarded a contract for the Oak Terrace Water System Test Well Drilling Project. The 2021 test well was determined to be unproductive during the drilling and testing process as it did not meet LCPW's requirements and therefore an additional test well is needed.
