During a special meeting of the West Valley Water District Board of Directors on Saturday, April 6, General Manager Clarence Mansell, Jr. made a special presentation regarding the need for the water agency to add six wells to increase capacity and bring more safe drinking water to the ratepayers at a reasonable price. Mansell advised the directors, “Our team has been assessing our customer usage and assets throughout the District. We have identified key wells that are currently not functioning. The District is going to get these wells up and running to assist throughout the months when our region experiences triple digit temperatures.” President Dr. Michael Taylor stated, “These wells need to be up and running for the ratepayers in the summer months. I am committed to adding capacity to the District so that ratepayers will continue to get safe and affordable drinking water in the peak summer months. Each year we experience a significant increase in water usage throughout the District and it is our responsibility to be best prepared. As President, I will continue being committed to fulfilling our mission of providing safe, high quality, and reliable water to our customers.” Now that the board has approved the proposal, the work is expected to begin immediately. According to the agency, multiple projects are expected to be completed prior to the onset of summer.
