Ukiah Finds Potential Site for New Well

The city of Ukiah has iden­ti­fied vacant prop­erty in the Brush Street Tri­an­gle as the poten­tial site of its new well, No. 9. The spot selected is in the north­west cor­ner of the vacant prop­erty between the Orchard Avenue Bridge and Orr Street. The site is closer to the city’s main water­line on Brush Street, so less pip­ing would be needed to con­nect the well.The prop­erty is owned by the Rural Com­mu­ni­ties Hous­ing Devel­op­ment Cor­po­ra­tion, and the city has been work­ing on an agree­ment with them to allow the city to drill a test well on the site. If the tests are suc­cess­ful, the city will build Well No. 9 there. In exchange for the prop­erty, he said, RCHDC will receive water con­nec­tions equal to the fair mar­ket value of the land.
