Scottsdale Water Resources is in the process of upgrading a nearby groundwater well (Well 71) and pump station located on the southeast corner of Miller and Thomas roads. Well71MapThis parcel of land was formerly occupied by Scottsdale Fire until recently. The current well site is located at the north end of the property.

Well 71 is an important component in the North Indian Bend Wash Superfund cleanup efforts. It was built in 1959 and has reached the end of its useful life at the current location. To continue the cleanup efforts, Water Resources needs to drill a replacement well in a new location on the existing property. The new well will have greater pumping capacity and will continue to assist in the Superfund remediation.

Learn more about Superfund sites in Scottsdale.

Water Resources is proposing to construct the new location of Well 71 at the south end of the property. The new well footprint will be larger in scale than the existing well and pump station to accommodate the elimination of a nearby pumping station located a half mile to the east. This pumping station has also reach the end of its useful life.

We realize your neighborhood will also be impacted by the Thomas Road Streetscape Project. You can learn more about this project on the project website.
