Application ID: 3-3340-00141/00009
Permit(s) Applied for: Article 15 Title 15 Water Supply
Project is Located: Monroe, Orange County
Project Description:
        The Village of Kiryas Joel has applied for a Water Supply permit to add a new well (Well #28) adjacent to the Ramapo River be pumped at a rate of 450 gallons per minute (gpm). The 45-foot deep well was drilled into a 25-foot thick sand and gravel aquifer which extends underneath the Ramapo River but which is vertically isolated from the River by a 20-foot thick layer of silty clay. The Village conducted a 72-hour pumptest while monitoring the River's flow and observation wells located as far away as 1,100 feet from Well #28.  The Village's nearby Brenner Wellfield wells is not hydraulically connected to Well #28 because those are deep bedrock wells which draw from a different aquifer.
       Well #28 is located near the Town of Monroe's Archer Road Well (another deep rock well) between the abandoned railroad bed and the Ramapo River, approximately one-half mile off NYS Rt 17M, in the Town of Monroe, Orange County, NY.
