Wrentham’s Well #3 Replacement Update 2023

The Town of Wrentham currently operates five gravel-packed groundwater supply wells. During routine maintenance, Wrentham’s Well No. 3 screen failed. Because this well is crucial for water supply, EP promptly assisted the Town in the permitting and installation of a replacement well.

The new production well was installed within 250 feet of Well No. 3, allowing it to be permitted as a replacement rather than a new source. The new location improved the Town’s Wellhead protection area by creating a more compliant 400-foot Zone I. The new Zone I significantly reduced exposure to Route 140, and increased Town ownership of the wellhead protection area.

EP is working with the Town to design and construct the necessary water system components to connect the replacement well to the system.
