Since January, we have done extensive work to our water and sewage systems.
We have replaced two 24 year old failing water pumps.
Installed a chlorination system to make our water potable.
Replaced and rerouted old sewage lines.
Installed check valves and new water lines to help automate some of the process.
Replaced the 20 year old hot water heater and installed a pressure tank.
We still need to purchase and install some float switches to get the most water we can from our hand dug 21 foot surface water wells. It’s not possible to go any deeper as we are sitting on a lime stone shelf that is more than 900 feet deep.
Daily more than 300 people depend on our water system, so these upgrades were desperately needed.
Each year we have to purchase tanker loads of water during the dry season. We are considering digging some additional wells to try and alleviate our water shortage. Each additional well will cost about $3,000 to completely install.
