On behalf of our clients Lake Don Pedro Community Services District (LDPCSD), Kampa Community Solutions has as of October 2015 successfully secured $1.1 million in state grant funds for the construction of three new groundwater wells serving this rural residential community with a population of 3500. These wells will provide enough water to completely replace LDPCSD’s surface water supply from Lake McClure, which is expected to go dry this winter if substantial rain does not materialize soon.
KampaCS teamed with Kennedy Jenks Consultants from Sacramento, Binkley Associates of Sunnyvale, The Source Group of Pleasant Hill and a variety of local consultants and contractors to develop this new source of water supply from concept through design, permitting, environmental review, well testing, and construction within a ten month period!
Building a new water supply for any community in California is very difficult these days. But to do so in less than one year, with no access to the remaining surface water in local lakes, drilling productive wells in the Sierra’s hard-rock groundwater environment and doing so with 70% grant funding is truly testament to the skill and diligent effort of the team!
