Geyser Crest Well System Upgrade Design Underway

SARATOGA SPRINGS — Department of Public Works Commissioner Anthony “Skip” Scirocco announced last week that the Geyser Crest well system will be upgraded to increase water draw from well #7. DPW contracted with CT Male Engineers of Latham to study and design the rehabilitation of Geyser Crest Well #7. 

The Geyser Crest well system represents a critical water supply source for the City’s southwest neighborhoods, and along with the Bog Meadow wells, supplements the City’s main water source at Loughberry Lake. 

“This is an investment into an important part of our water infrastructure to ensure the continued delivery of great quality water to the southwest neighborhoods of our city, ” said Scirocco, in a statement. “The growing infrastructure needs of Saratoga Springs continue to expand and it’s important to plan for today with a vision toward what will be needed in the future.”

Well #7 had originally yielded 500 gallons per minute (GPM) when it was installed in 1988 but is currently averaging around 180 GPM. CT Male Engineers will investigate the current well issues and determine how to increase the GPM flow. Their services include investigation, design, and construction administration services. The actual construction of well #7 improvements will be handled by a well drilling contractor through a separate request for proposal. DPW hosted a kick-off meeting with CT Male Engineer Jonathon Dippert, P.G. on Tuesday, August 31, 2021 to start the project.

DPW anticipates the engineering analysis, design and construction bid documents by CT Male Engineers will be completed during the Fall of 2021 with the construction phase to follow shortly thereafter.
