Emergency water storage/supply well

emergency-water-supply-well-1-location-map

This project provides emergency water for residents and businesses that receive Menlo Park Municipal Water and are located east of El Camino Real. The well water will not be distributed to water customers unless there is an emergency and normal water supplies are low or unavailable.

This well is located at the City’s Corporation Yard at 333 Burgess Drive. The well consists of the following components:

  • Well pump (placed underground approximately 385 feet deep)
  • Well piping
  • Generator
  • Disinfection equipment
  • Surge control tank
  • Electrical cabinet
  • PG&E transformer
  • Fire hydrant
  • New fencing and front entrance gate
  • Site improvements (low water use, landscaping, driveway curbs)

Water produced during periodic exercising of the well will be used for Corp Yard activities (i.e., irrigation, vehicle washing and street sweeper) and will not normally be distributed to water customers unless there is an emergency and normal water supplies are low or unavailable.

Current status

Construction of the well facility was completed in late 2020. The City will perform final well testing (target date winter 2023) and then be able to use the well as an emergency supply.
