Explorer Well Project

PROJECT ADDRESS
The proposed location for the Explorer Well is in the former JPL East Parking Lot, approximately 2500 feet north of the intersection of Windsor Avenue and Ventura Street. The existing roadway will be realigned prior to the commencement of the above grade improvements for Explorer Well.

PROJECT DESCRIPTION

Pasadena Water and Power (PWP) will be constructing a new water well - Explorer Well.  This well when combined with PWP’s other four existing wells in the Arroyo will further assist in the groundwater cleanup operations.  Water pumped from Explorer Well will be treated at the Monk Hill Treatment System to provide clean and safe drinking water.  A new concrete masonry unit building will house the well along with the associated mechanical components and electrical equipment for security and sound attenuation. A perimeter chain link fence will be installed for site security and PWP staff access.

 


ENVIRONMENTAL REVIEW

An Initial Study was prepared for the project and concluded that there will be less than significant impacts on the environment with the incorporation of mitigation measures; a Mitigated Negative Declaration has therefore been prepared.  Possible impacts on Cultural Resources, Geology and Soils, Hazards and Hazardous Materials, Noise, Biological Resources,  Tribal Cultural Resources, and Mandatory Findings of Significance were identified in the Initial Environmental Study.
