This report deals with the source of raw water the Wells their condition and their possible future by John Mikula it staff writer the two water Wells located at 14th Street near third Avenue Ford City Supply a daily average of 750,000 Gallons of raw water to the Ford City Borough filter Plant on top of the Hill. The Wells Are approximately 70 feet deep and each can deliver about 650-Gal ions per minute. However the two Well pumps work together and their output is diminished so that the total delivery is about 1,000-Gallons-per-minute. At 1,000-Ga Lions per minute the pumps deliver 60,000-Gallons per hour in ten hours the Reservoir receives 600, ski Gallons. In a 14-hour work Day the total is 840,000 Gallons. There Are two More Wells in town that Are inoperable. One is at the Borough garage and dismantled the other is at the Borough Park and abandoned the two Wells now in operation Are the main source of water Supply. Both must operate daily to provide the needs of the Borough by pumping during most of the two work shifts at the filter Plant from 7 a m to 2 and from 2 to 9 . A theoretically the engineers reported in their study a should one of the two available Wells be out of service for an extended period of time the demands could be met by operating the water treatment Plant on a three shift basis although this would require additional staffing would increase operating costs significantly and would not be operationally desirable since it would place additional round the clock demand on the sole remaining serviceable Well. A maintenance records indicated that both operating Wells were last cleaned in -1975. In addition during 1975 and 1976, major mechanical rehabilitation work was performed at both Wells including the installation of new column parts piping and valves at one Well and installation of new pump parts at the other Well. A historically Well cleaning work has been performed at intervals of 7 to to years or As the need arises. At the present time both operating Wells Are due for cleaning a it has been proven that As time passes without cleaning the capacity of the Wells diminishes cleaning is for the purpose of allowing a greater flow of the barter a free water the Wells Are located in the a Allegheny River alluvial Sand and gravel in the floodplain is saturated with water for the source. Some experts claim the floodplain begins in new York state with the Allegheny River and follows both sides of the Stream to Pittsburgh and continues southward along the Ohio River. These saturated Sand and gravel deposits form a huge underground Stream that is tapped by numerous water companies and industries along the Allegheny and Ohio.
