← Back to Well No. 21 Equipping and Related Site Work


To enhance the reliability of its water system and limit reliance on purchased water, the City of Vernon purchased an existing well formerly used to manufacture paper products. Cannon designed and prepared construction drawings to equip Well No. 21 and provide site improvements. Equipping the existing well required preparation of hydraulic calculations as well as designing and specifying the pump and motor, inflatable packer, discharge piping, electrical equipment and controls, and SCADA. Cannon considered two options to accommodate well flushing: construct a lined detention basin, or an underground sump system. Initially, it was determined two above ground Frac tanks (20,000 gallon each) would best serve the project. This option was subsequently confirmed after a cost analysis was prepared.
