Well Project Nearing Completion
24, 2014- Jessica Illuzzi
The DuBois water well project will be completed this summer providing the city
with a secondary water source. The wells will provide the community with an additional
1.5 million gallons of water per day.
Manager Herm Suplizio said there may be a few months left before the project is
complete. “Right now we are still in the middle or maybe toward the end of our
water well project which is very big for a community our size, not just for the
city of DuBois but for the whole community. Hopefully in about 6 months that
will be up and running, and be online.”
also said the water well project is important for numerous reasons including
being a backup in case something happened to the reservoir.
have been working on of our reservoir for such a long period of time. If we
would ever need to work on the dam or the reservoir itself, or god forbid if
the reservoir ever was contaminated we now have that back up. We are using more
and more water and hopefully the wells will pick up on that.”
