Oak Hill Municipal Well Project

Project Description

We are pleased to announce we will be adding the Oak Hill Well to our City’s groundwater network as part of our ongoing Well Construction Program.

The Well Construction Program will expand the City’s groundwater well network, creating a new reserve water source for use in emergencies and times of severe drought when other sources are diminished or not available. Ultimately, the goal of the Well Construction Program is to help our City utilities infrastructure (and the community with it) become more flexible and more durable to withstand water supply and climate stresses.

Currently, most of Petaluma’s groundwater wells are located on the City’s east side. The Oak Hill Well site was selected as a priority due to its proximity to the water distribution system and location within a high-yield groundwater aquifer.
