Bartlett and West indicated that one potential way to improve the quality of water in the well serving the Legends was to bring it to a shallower depth. However, while this could improve the Total Dissolved Solids (TDS) level, potential downsides included reduced water pressure and volume, which could result in service issues for residents. The board considered hiring a contractor to test this theory, along with other options such as taking the Legends’ well offline entirely and filling the nearby tank with water from another well, which could also reduce the volume of water available. The city did not move forward with these proposals for three reasons: 1) After studying the city’s rate structure, it was determined that there was not enough funding to do the studies and tests to determine if the projects would be successful, or to complete the future work. 2) The city did not want to continue to spend money on the water system prior to providing the public with the option to sell the system, as there would be no reason to invest in improving water in one area if the entire city would be receiving improved water from another source. 3) The city determined that the sewer upgrades needed to meet ammonia limits and comply with inflow and infiltration testing had to be addressed prior to spending money on water projects. The sewer system investment is required for compliance, while the water system investment is optional.
