|Who Was Contacted:||Diane Dendy|
|Contacted By:||CIVIL WEST ENGINEERS, INC (DWP)|
|Assistance Type:||CIRCUIT RIDER ASSISTANCE|
|Details:||Diane Dendy reached out to the circuit rider and indicated that the water system was having issues with their wells and were thinking that one in particular was going dry. They had an electrician come out to troubleshoot the well and he believed that since they moved their electric service and now have a much longer electric run to the well that the well pump motor is probably not getting enough current to operate.
The circuit rider contacted Diane and spoke at length about the water system and the issues that they are currently faced with. Based on the discussion, it became apparent that the well needs to be troubleshooted by someone more familiar with water wells. The circuit rider suggested having the well assessed by a local well driller. If the well has indeed gone dry, we suggest that High Desert Estates apply for SIPP funding to have a feasibility study to determine their best course of action.
The circuit rider can assist with the SIPP application when High Desert Estates is ready.
