Water supply backup wells

This project will provide backup emergency water for residents and businesses that receive Menlo Park Municipal Water and are located east of El Camino Real. The goal is to construct 2 to 3 backup emergency wells to provide a combined total of 3,000 gallons per minute. This water will not be distributed to water customers unless there is an emergency and normal water supplies are low or unavailable. Design and construction of a well consists of three steps: environmental review, well drilling and construction of the wellhead facility.
