Due to a variety of reasons including safety concerns, the City of Stockton was faced with decommissioning thirteen unused and abandoned well sites throughout the City. Each site had to be demolished and the wells had to be destroyed in a manner that met San Joaquin Health Department and State of California Well Standards requirements. Each well site was unique and designs and specifications included modifying piping, removing the majority of the wellhead, removal, and disposal of hydropneumatic tanks, well pumps, motors, control centers, electrical conduits and wiring, sand separators, SCADA equipment, chlorination injection pumps, and building structures. Because of the variation between each well site, separate solutions were compiled into one comprehensive report and design which satisfied the City’s project goals.
