New TGW well in development at Meadow Ranch

The old and failing well at Meadow Ranch was turned off on 4/6/09. On the same day, work started on our new well only 20’ away and in the same fenced area adjacent to Victoria Lane in the Meadow Ranch development. During the process, all water connections of TGW have been provided water from the company’s other well at Norman Lane. Fortunately, all demands are being supplied during the construction phase without interruption and there has been no need to rely on water from our emergency intertie with our neighbor, Soquel Creek Water District.

Well development continues as of the time of this writing and is expected to be complete before the end of May, 2009, in time for the increased water demands of the summer season. Our new well has been drilled to a depth of 580’, approximately 200’ deeper than the old well. Initial lab reports and volume tests indicate we have both good quality and quantity of water, if conservation efforts of our members continue for as long as the current drought situation persists. TGW hopes to supply all connections from the new well and use Norman well as backup due to its higher concentration of manganese.

Isn’t it nice to hear some good news in these otherwise difficult times!
