WELL #3 AND WELL HOUSE PROJECT
The new Well House is located on the Dayton Street end of Saelens Park. The initial location was to be near the water tower at the South end of town. Water samples received in that test site didn’t give ideal results. Rather than purchase a million dollar filter system, the Board opted to try another location at Saelens Park. This turned out to be a great decision. Upon drilling this 2nd test location, an Artesian Well was discovered. We are happy to have come upon the best option for Village residents. The Well House is completed. The well equipment will be connected to the SKADA system, using internet through fiber optics*, to allow Public Works to monitor and make changes by app on a tablet or smart phone. They will also receive alerts and notifications in the case that something should malfunction or go wrong while Public Works employees are not on duty.
*Since we are running fiber optics to the Wellhouse at Saelens Park, we will be offering FREE Village WiFi access to anyone who does not have the option for in-home internet services and anyone using the park for work or recreation.
