A request by Merril Jessop on the behalf of YFZ Land, LLC, for a permit to drill a new water well was discussed by the board of Plateau Underground Water Conservation and Supply District at their meeting on Wednesday, December 22, 2010. The proposed well is intended to supplement the YFZ Ranch’s one public water supply well.
Since the proposed well would be less than 100 ft. from an existing well, the request also included an exception to the spacing rule that requires 1,320 ft. between permitted wells.
It was noted that there are currently five permitted wells on the 1,691 acre ranch, with four of them being for irrigation.
Jessop signed the permit application, but it was presented to the board by Paul Allred, who is certified to operate the
ranch’s public water treatment plant and wastewater system.
