Elsinore Valley Municipal Water District, Well Rehabilitation

Riverside County, CA

The Elsinore Valley Municipal Water District (EVMWD) was founded in 1950 and provides water service to the city of Lake Elsinore and surrounding communities. Currently, the district serves more than 45,000 water, wastewater, and agricultural connections. Geoscience recently provided recommendations and oversaw well rehabilitation for five existing wells, and is currently rehabilitating three wells for the district.

During the recent rehabilitation efforts for five wells, our team provided rehabilitation recommendations, helped develop contractor specifications, and oversaw well rehabilitation including:

  • Video surveys
  • Brushing and bailing
  • Chemical rehabilitation
  • Development by swabbing and airlift
  • Pump and surge testing
  • Aquifer pump tests
  • Water quality sampling

At the conclusion of each well rehabilitation, our team provided recommended operation parameters and suggestions for future monitoring. Our team also developed rehabilitation specifications for the Diamond well and are currently reviewing contractor submittals prior to beginning rehabilitation activities. We are also developing specifications for two new wells. 

To date we have completed well rehabilitation for Flagler Wells 1A and 2A, Cereal Wells No. 1 and No. 3, the Terra Cotta Well, Summerly Well, Mayhew Well, and Machado Well.
