“The well,” also known as Well No. 5 or the 164th Street Artesian Well is in excess of 400 feet in depth and is cased to approximately 120 feet. The well flows at a rate of about 10 gallons per minute.
The source of water at the well is an underground aquifer (water-bearing layer of permeable rock, sand or gravel). The well taps the Intercity Aquifer at approximately 200 feet.
As a courtesy to residents, Alderwood Water & Wastewater District maintains this flowing artesian well as a community source of water for those who prefer untreated water.
