Artesian Well Information

Source of water

This well, known alternatively as Well No. 5 or the 164th Street Artesian Well (the 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.
