In October 2016, staff issued a public bid request
to hire a drilling contractor for the Menlo Park Municipal Water District
’s first emergency water supply well
at the City Corporation Yard located at 333 Burgess Drive. The well drilling phase will be less than 60 days and will include a continuous 24/7 drilling process spanning 7-10 days. Other non-drilling project construction activities will occur during normal working hours. Maggiora Bros. Drilling Inc., the city’s contractor, is anticipated to begin construction in January 2017. Staff will implement an extensive outreach program to notify nearby residents and businesses of the upcoming construction, which will include door hangers, postcards and community meetings. The well will be temporarily capped while the final design of the wellhead facilities is completed. Construction of the wellhead facilities will follow and is anticipated to occur in summer 2017.
