In its ongoing effort to figure out where to place up to three emergency water wells, the City of Menlo Park will host a public hearing on Thursday (Sept. 9) at the Burgess Recreation Center on Alma Street.
According to city staff, the wells are critical to guarantee a supply of drinking water in case of a major disaster that disrupts the water lines running from the Hetch Hetchy reservoir to 14,000 residents in the Sharon Heights neighborhood and areas east of El Camino Real.
The goal of the hearing is to establish criteria for determining placement, but not decide on specific well sites. The City Council is expected to review the criteria in October.
The meeting starts at 6:30 p.m.
