Waverly Wellfield Design and Construction Administration

Waverly, Indiana

The Indianapolis Department of Waterworks, through their operating contractor, Veolia Water-Indianapolis, initiated development of a new water supply wellfield to provide additional raw water supply. The new wellfield, consisting of six high-capacity wells, was designed to provide an initial dependable yield of 12 MGD, with the capability for expansion up to 24 MGD. American Structurepoint was contracted to design the production wells, including siting of four new wells and site approval for two existing 24-inch-diameter test wells. Well screen size and length were designed on the basis of test drilling data and formation sampling from the test holes. Specific elements of the project included design, analysis, and evaluation of aquifer testing (24-hour pumping tests) conducted on each of the new wells.
