Location: Forestville, CA
Project Scope: 7th Generation Design was invited to revamp an old spring site in Forestville, CA with an upgraded water collection and distribution system. The spring has been tapped and in use for a long time, as evidenced by the multiple iterations of collection piping and spring boxes found buried in the mud surrounding the active seep zone. Two horizontal wells had been drilled adjacent to the seep zone 3 years ago in an effort to boost waning supply, one of which had since ceased to function and the other had experienced ~ 70% reduction in flow rate. The seep zone was producing ~ 3 gallons per minute, all of which was flowing out of the area uncollected.
