The Well 13 and 46th Street Reservoir design project in Garden City, Idaho will supplement the current 10 potable water wells serving nearly 6,000 equivalent dwelling units (EDUs). Currently, Well 3 is located on 43rd Street just north of Adams Street. Well 13 and well house will be constructed in order to replace Well 3 on this site. In addition, a 800,000 gallon cast-in-place concrete water storage reservoir will be constructed on 46th Street in order to provide flow equalization and fire suppression storage for the east end of Garden City, Idaho.

Poseidon Engineering, Inc. has designed the water resource aspects of the project. Well 13 has been designed to a depth of 500 feet to meet demand of 1,200 gpm. The well is directly connected to the water distribution system using a deep submersible pump. The storage reservoir has been sized to provide flow equalization during the peak hour demand of the system. Booster pumps have been selected in order to provide the adequate increase in pressure head to convey the water from the storage reservoir into the distribution system.
