SPRING HILL LEISURE COMMUNITY47 Spring St, Rehoboth,  Massachusetts
Provencher Engineering was contracted by the site property owner Gene Dumontier to coordinate, design, and secure permits for a new public water supply and a wastewater treatment and disposal system for a proposed 74,000 gallons per day planned residential community, consiting of 200 units of age-restricted and 200 units of unrestricted housing.  The property was an old sand and gravel pit. Master planning of one public water supply source well and a wastewater treatment and disposal facility was initially conducted. Then, we simultaneously permitted the new bedrock public water supply well and a filed a Groundwater Discharge Permit for the wastewater system. 

Since the bedrock well was already installed, we coordinated and conducted a successful 48-hour pumping test on the single-source bedrock well. The well required an off-site Zone 1 easement because the 380-foot Zone 1 well head protective radius overlapped onto abutting property. The water quality samples collected during the pump tests indicted elevated iron & manganese, therfore, a cation exchange water softener was designed and included in our permit application.  

A Source Final Report on the well and pump tests was submitted to DEP with our design of the entire water supply system, including a pumping station with a water treatment system, a 150,000 gallon bolted steel water storage tank, and potable distribution system. A New Source Approval for the construction of the 74,000 GPD full-build water supply was granted. The owner maintains the permit and is planning for the commencement of construction of the project in the near future.
