Well 5 Improvements Assure Ongoing Reliability

Well 5 Improvements Assure Ongoing Reliability

Mesa Water recently improved our Well 5 to help fulfill two of our Strategic Plan goals:

  • Provide a safe, abundant, and reliable water supply.
  • Practice perpetual infrastructure renewal and improvement.

Originally drilled in 1983, Well 5 pumps over 2,200 gallons per minute. After operating for 35 years, Well 5’s pump was replaced with a more energy-efficient model. The Well 5 pump is powered by a natural gas-fired engine to keep the well working during electrical power outages.

Also, well casing repairs were made, and new technology was installed to transmit real-time instrument readings from Well 5 to our headquarters. The improvements ensure Well 5 is in top condition to reliably serve water for our community.
