WHY IT’S NEEDED
Well No. 6 is the primary well and the only well available that could provide minimal water supply to lower pressure zones in the city during a power outage. The current pump was last repaired in 1994, and the backup pump lacks the capacity to service the pressure zone.
The pump covers service area including Walmart Distribution Center, Eastern Oregon Higher Education Center, Pioneer Seed, and Eastern Oregon Trade and Event Center. Preventative maintenance will avoid significant inconvenience and loss of water to area businesses.
Electrical analysis begins at Well #6 in preparation for equipment order.
Electrical analysis complete, finalizing equipment purchase order.
Contract awarded to Gordon’s Electric for $336,000. (Staff report)
Significant delay in generator lead-time. Anticipated delivery in Summer 2023.
