Body
In February, 2011 Black and Veatch Inc. provided Madison Water Utility staff a report recommending that Unit Well 7 located on Sherman Avenue be reconstructed to bring it up to current Utility standards. This reconstruction would include the addition of an iron and manganese filter, the provision for the future addition of VOC treatment, and the increase in the reservoir size to 400,000 gallons to meet current standards. Well 7 is a key water supply, transmission and distribution component of the Madison drinking water system. The well provides drinking water and fire protection to upwards of 10,000 residents on the east and north sides of Madison. The proposed reservoir is sized to provide the long term emergency supply needs and fire fighting requirements of the system and is in line with Utility criteria, standard engineering practice and Insurance Service Office guidelines.

This evaluation indicated the need for additional property to construct the water transmission and distribution system associated with Well 7.
