Re: Well #1 and Water Conservation
Silver Creek Village purchased the water system that was in place for this community in December 1995 from the Jones-Owens Water Company Austin Texas. Well #1 was the source of the water for this system. No Well Data was received when the system was purchased. Property owners that purchased their property in the 1970s indicated that Well # 1 was the primary water source for the community at that time.
Well # 1 was producing as much as 1 million gallons per month prior to 2011 when the drought started in Central Texas. In July 2011 Well # 1 produced 642,300 gallons, then, by January 2012 production had dropped below 20,000 gallons per month. Production was -0- by April 2013.
Recently Well #1 is having an issue keeping up with demand. The recovery rate is approximately 15 GPM. This may be the reason the pump burned up and caused us the recent problems. The new pump is running for about 30 minutes starting at 32 GPM and then slowly drops off in GPM due to the drawdown of the well. When the well starts to pump air the pump saver is cutting the pump off as it should. We have the pump saver set to come back on after a fifteen-minute rest period for the well to recover some. We are making adjustments at the ground storage tank to shorten the cycle of the well-run time to keep the ground storage tank topped off, if possible. The well is only going to produce an estimated maximum of 21,000 gallons per day. You, the water users, are using on average 9,500 gallons per day.
Now, with Summer starting, we always use more water, so the Water Board of Directors is asking that all our customers Conserve Water and use only water for your indoor household needs and not for outdoor use.
