Latest Gravel Pit Study Signals Need for Another Backup Water Supply


Springfield’s fallback plan for a secondary water source falls short of what the community needs… according to the latest study of the gravel pits the city purchased years ago.

 

An engineering firm finds the city could only pump 1.6 million gallons of water per day from the pits without affecting the water supply of neighboring towns and private wells.

 

That’s only one-tenth of earlier estimates, and well short of what would be needed for a viable water source.

 

The city has been searching for alternatives to the stalled Hunter Lake project as a backup water supply.
