About the Project
Greene County Sanitary Engineering Department (GCSED) is developing a 57-acre property on Hilltop Road for use as a groundwater-producing wellfield. This water supply will be conveyed to the GCSED’s water treatment plant and subsequently distributed to Greene County’s water customers. The purpose of this project is to improve and expand the available water supply to provide an additional 3- to 5-million gallons of water per day for current and future growth projections.
- Adds supply capacity for current and future water demands
- Increases level of redundancy and operational flexibility (like an insurance policy if something goes wrong)
- Sources a new aquifer access point
Impacts to Customers
Residents should anticipate some localized construction traffic starting in 2022.
An aquifer is a large ground water body that is tapped by wells and pumped to the surface for use by households and businesses.
The land above and surrounding wells drilled into an aquifer is called a “wellfield.” Water collecting on the surface in the wellfield and surrounding area seeps through the ground into an aquifer.
This wellfield will be producing groundwater for ultimate treatment and distribution of high-quality drinking water to the County’s water customers.
No, it is up to the homeowner to decide if they want to tap in. If you have any questions about the process of receiving county water to your residence, please contact our project management team at 937-562-7461.
