The Newcastle Water Company (NWC) operates a single well to supply potable water for consumption and use by the town of Newcastle. To protect this well from contamination and to comply with Utah's Drinking Water Source Protection Program, the town is developing a Drinking Water Source Protection Plan.
This report describes the delineation of drinking-water-source-protection (DWSP) zones for a public-water-supply well in southern Escalante Valley, Iron County, Utah. The well is about 3.25 miles northwest of the town of Newcastle, along Utah Highway 56. The town of Newcastle is a rural farming community that obtains its municipal drinking water from this well. The Newcastle Water Company (NWC) owns the well, and requested and assisted in this delineation of DWSP zones. The scope of work included a literature search, review of water-well logs, field reconnaissance, an aquifer test, interpretation of test data, delineation of the DWSP zones, and preparation of this report.
