Valley County Water District operates and maintains 4 active production wells for water production supply purposes, including:
Clinton O. Nixon East Well - 2,750 gallons per minute
Clinton O. Nixon West Well - 2,700 gallons per minute
Maine Street East Well - 1,800 gallons per minute
Maine Street West Well - 1,200 gallons per minute
These four wells combine to extract a maximum of 8,450 gallons per minute from underground aquifers as deep as 300 feet below the grounds surface. In just one day, more than 12 million gallons of water can be pumped and delivered to the system. Under normal conditions, an average of 7 million gallons per day is served to meet the needs and demands of the residents and businesses within the service area.
In addition to the four active wells, Valley County Water District owns five inactive water production wells, including:
- Arrow Highway Well
- Morada Well
- Paddy Lane Well
- Big Dalton Well
- Palm Well
Each of these inactive water production wells are currently out of service since the water produced from them would not meet State or Federal drinking water standards without proper treatment.
