This project entailed performing an engineering evaluation to determine the best option for providing an additional water source to the Village of Warwick. Options evaluated for the backup source included Well #3 or the development of another new well. Well #3 has an average yield capacity of 250 GPM and can yield up to 400,000 GPD. Well #3 was known to be Ground Water under the Direct Influence (GWUDI) of surface water and needed either treatment or pumping to the microfiltration plant before use as a primary source. KC performed a preliminary investigation and presented a recommendation to the Village. KC also prepared a preliminary design concept, capital and life cycle cost analysis, and an engineer’s report for the preferred option.
