Hunter Well Field project nears completion

August 16, 2014

After more than a year of planning, constructing and drilling, the Hunter Well Field is nearly ready to pump fresh water to Sweetwater residents.
The wells — which run approximately 200 feet deep — will help ease the water burden the city has faced since Oak Creek Reservoir ran dry in late 2013. City engineers Enprotec Hibbs & Todd estimates the wells' production capacity to be anywhere from 900,000 to one million gallons of water per day. City officials have pegged the number at 750,000-900,000 gallons.
