Liberty Utilities (Apple Valley Ranchos) Corporation hosted a dedication ceremony on April 15, 2019, to commemorate the completion of a $3.5 million well project that will ensure the utility can continue providing safe, reliable water to the Apple Valley community. Attendees at the ceremony, hosted by Liberty Utilities and the Apple Valley Chamber of Commerce, toured the new Well 35 facility and learned about how it will benefit the local community.
“This new well was made possible because of the hard work of so many, and we appreciate all of the efforts that went into completing this important infrastructure project,” said Tony Penna, Liberty Utilities Vice President and General Manager. “Our water infrastructure includes 20 wells, 470 miles of pipe, 11 reservoirs, and eight booster stations. Water system investments like Well 35 are an important function to ensure safety and reliability are never compromised.”
The well was constructed to replace four retired wells and is capable of pumping up to 3,000 gallons of water per minute. Once online, it will work in concert with 19 other wells that provide water to the local system serving about 20,000 homes and businesses in Apple Valley.
