Augmentation Well update June 2021



The testing well at the Elmgate location indicated that the well should produce about 1500 gpm at a minimum. This is below the optimum volume we were hoping for, but does meet the minimum amount which would justify the installation of a permanent augmentation well at this location. Therefore, the well installation process, under the direction of the Oakland County Water Resources Commission, will continue on the Elmgate site and there will not be any testing done on the Shady Beach Marina site. As previously reported, this well will not be in service in time for the 2021 season but should be up and running for the 2022 season.
