Client project details
Coweta County, GA (Groundwater Investigation)
Looking to augment their surface water supplies, and to provide some water supply diversity to their water system, the Coweta County Water & Sewer Department hired EGGI to investigate the availability of groundwater resources in a northern section of this Georgia County. Application of EGGI's proven exploration and development program resulted in the delineation of three Groundwater Development Zones, one of which was later discovered to contain a potentially high-yielding domestic well. Preliminary well testing and negotiations with the homeowner led the County to purchase the well lot. The existing well was then converted into a larger-diameter public water supply Production Well. EGGI proceeded with the testing of the yield and quality of the well. EGGI successfully completed the development process for the well and received all necessary groundwater withdrawal permits for the public use of this groundwater source.
The well is currently on-line, supplying more than 0.5 MGD (500,000 gpd) of ‘sweet water’ directly into the County’s water supply system; 'sweet water' being what the commissioners called it after it was brought on line.
