City Drilling New Well in Alameda Park


Sound walls started going up in Alameda Park this week to buffer nearby residents from the audio assault associated with drilling a new city well. The old Alameda Park well drilled about 20 years ago failed when its steel casing corroded. The new one will go 700 feet down and is expected to produce 400 gallons of water per minute. Engineers estimate it will take three weeks of 24-hour work to make the hole.
