The motor control equipment for the two Fairmont Park water wells is over 40 years old and is now obsolete. Salvaged parts are difficult to find. Staff recommends replacement with a 250 horsepower and 100 horsepower soft-start, currently in used at other city water wells. The project also includes new enclosures and upgrades necessary to meet current electrical codes. The City uses mostly surface water. In the event that well water is required these wells are very important to maintain water service to residents.
