NORTH OGDEN -- The city's engineer is proposing that a new well be drilled to the tune of $1.44 million.
The city wants to secure its water rights and be brought up to state guidelines for water. To do so, a fourth well is recommended, said Matt Hartvigsen, an engineer with Jones and Associates, the city's engineering firm.
Currently, the city is providing water at guidelines set in 2007, but this new well would put the water system a few years ahead.
Hartvigsen presented a detailed plan at a recent city council meeting, where he explained why a new well is needed in the next fiscal year.
