1. This project includes the rehabilitation of up to three water wells at the City of Scappoose’s Miller Road Water Treatment Facility. The existing wells are shown on Figure 1, and water well logs are included. The City of Scappoose has noted declines in the production capacity in each well (MR-1, MR-2 and MR-3). Water quality samples collected in 2015 suggest that the wells have bacterial and mechanical fouling issues. The first part of the work described herein is to document the existing conditions at each well using a video survey. Prescriptive rehabilitation measures will be recommended upon completion of the video surveys. Activities may include chemical and/or mechanical rehabilitation in order to improve the performance of the wells and increase their capacities.
