Water System ID#
Hadleigh Woods Community Water System (HWCWS) is a condominium owned
water system and consists of 62 active adult (2) bedroom units. The water
facilities consist of three bedrock wells, a suitable sized pump house
and a 25,000 gallon atmospheric storage tank, (2) 7.5 hp VTD booster pumps
(we keep a spare pump in the pump house) that maintain water pressure
from 50 to 80 psi, automatic controls, and consists primarily of 4" PVC water mains
and HDPE service lines to each residence. The system operates on a
demand basis. A pressure transducer controls well pump operation and
pressure controls control booster pump operation these booster pumps
alternate unless there is a great demand in which both pumps will run. The pump house is constructed with an at-grade entrance and
contains the control and pumping equipment, atmospheric storage, as
well as water treatment equipment including a cationic exchange media
(water softener) as treatment for iron and low level manganese
(staining agents) in the well water. The water storage tank holds water
for domestic as well as fire protection purposes. An approved Fire
Department connection is provided outside the station as a dry hydrant.
There is a standby generator set, VFD control panel and an outside
warning light with no horn active.
Two bedrock wells were installed in
2002. Well #1 is a 6" diameter bedrock well and is
145' deep. Well #2 is also a 6" diameter bedrock well and is 125' deep.
Both wells are equipped with a 20 gpm submersible pump and motor. Both
wells yielded 19.5 gpm during their pumping test and were permitted for
19.5 gpm each.
The average daily water use is
approximately 6,000 gallons per day and with irrigation is
approximately 18,000 gallons per day. All our water, including
irrigation, passes thorough our water treatment equipment. There is no
separate piping for irrigation.
The water lines are flushed once or
twice each year and residents are notified beforehand.
We have volunteers for the purposes
of keeping the water softener vat full and to keep vigil by taking
meter readings, water tank level, booster pump alternation, and keeping
a clean environment and notifying the system operated of any issues. A
number of issues have been identified and relayed to the system
operator before any major breakdown occurs. The combination of their
vigilance and buying bulk, these volunteers save the Association
hundreds of dollars each year.
