Construction for the Menlo Park Municipal Water District’s first emergency water supply well is set for Monday, Jan. 30 at the City’s Corporation Yard located at 333 Burgess Drive. Construction will last about 60 days and will include a continuous “24/7” well drilling period lasting approximately two weeks. Staff will hold a community meeting Thursday, Jan. 19, from 7–8:30 p.m., at the Arrillaga Family Recreation Center (Oak Room). The project team will discuss the project, explain what to expect during construction, and answer questions. Once construction is complete, the well will be temporarily capped while the final design of the above ground facilities is completed in summer 2017.
