City's well to be rehabilitated

February 26, 2016

The Cerritos City Council recently approved rehabilitation and repairs for one of the City's wells.

General Pump Company, which has been maintaining the City's wells and water infrastructure, was awarded a $423,434 contract to repair and rehabilitate Well C-2, which provides about a third of the water pumped by the City. The work is underway and is expected to be completed in April. Water customers will not be affected.

The project consists of removing the motor, column pipe, drive shaft and pump. The casing will also be examined to see if it needs to be replaced, repaired or modified.

The well, located at the Corporate Yard, is approximately 45 years old and was last rehabilitated in 2004.
