Were any other locations considered? Why was Oak Hill determined to be the best location for a new City well?

Oak Hill has historically been a water storage location in Petaluma. As such, needed land, existing utilities, and connections to the distribution system are already in place to support a well. In addition, the Oak Hill site is the only site connected to the city’s Zone 1 distribution system, which encompasses the majority of the City and has the highest water demand. Thus, Oak Hill was selected as the best location to extract water to support the City’s water needs.
