Water System Rehabilitation and Replacement

The City of Fresno has over 260 wells that pump groundwater and over 1,800 miles of water distribution pipelines, some of this infrastructure is close to 80 years old. Many of these wells and pipelines need to be replaced or rehabilitated to assure a continued safe and reliable water supply, minimize water system failures and minimize water service costs.

Recharge Fresno includes well and pipeline repair and replacement projects that will ensure all 260 wells are maintained or replaced, pump stations are in proper working condition and aging pipelines are replaced. Shown: Pump Station 55-2 well rehabilitation project

Well-Rehab

As wells age or near the end of their useful life they can slow or stop producing as much water as they should, which increases the energy cost of operating old wells. As pipelines age, they become susceptible to leaking and the wells need to be replaced entirely. By replacing and rehabilitating the wells and pipelines, the City of Fresno’s water supply will provide a reliable and consistent delivery of water to customers.
