About this Project

City Well #15 is one of the wells used for the City of Long Beach’s drinking water. Over the next two years, the City will be abandoning Well #9, as it has gone beyond it’s useful life. Well #15 is a 1,200-foot-deep water well, and re-lining it will extend its useful life by more than 20 years. 

FST also designed the replacement of damaged sublevel components for Water Well #15.
