Road Salt Study at Well 14

January 19, 2018 4:52 PM

Madison Water Utility now has a project page (Road Salt Study at Well 14) dedicated to an on-going series of studies into road salt impacts on Well 14 – the drinking water well located at 5130 University Avenue in the Spring Harbor neighborhood.  The webpage describes the results of the Borehole Investigation and Chloride Source Assessment, which were completed last year. 


In December, two shallow monitoring wells were installed in Spring Harbor Park to assess impacts of storm water drainage on water quality at Well 14.  Monthly chloride and sodium testing is planned through June 2019.  Results will be posted on this project page.  An alternatives analysis study is also planned for late 2018 and 2019.  This study will evaluate potential treatment options and their costs to mitigate chloride contamination at the municipal well.    


In conjunction with the launch of this project page, we have created an e-mail distribution list that will be used to update neighbors and interested stakeholders on our activities, test results, significant milestones in our studies, and the outcomes of our work.  Anyone can sign up directly from the project page
