Well 20W Project
As part of the Hi-Desert Water District’s goal to improve the water infrastructure in our community, the Hi-Desert Water District (HDWD) is working on the Warren Valley Basin Recharge/Reuse Project. This project includes the recharge sites on Pioneertown Road and Sunnyslope and the drilling of a new production well at Cherokee Trail and Coyote Trail.
On April 16, 2008, the District is began the process to drill the new well on the corner of Cherokee and Coyote.On October 8, 2014, HDWD joined the Yucca Valley Chamber of Commerce in welcoming the new Well 20 West by holding a ribbon cutting ceremony.
The depth of this new well is 944 feet and allows the District to increase water production capacity. In addition to the increased capacity, it will improve reliability of water service for years to come.
The new Well 20 West uses state of the art technology to produce up to 900 gallons of water per minute, which can provide up to 1.3 million gallons of water per day. Aware that water is a precious resource, the well's design reduces the possibility of water waste by redirecting displaced water to a recharge pond, thereby increasing water use efficiency.
