The City of Aurora constructed a new municipal water well to ensure that the community has the water capacity required to continue to operate at an optimal level as well as offer the quality of water required for a community water supply system. The levels of nitrates in our system are a growing issue. With the construction of this well north of town we significantly lowered the average nitrate levels throughout our system. The well is located off of 14 Road west of the cemetery. Schwisow Construction out of Lincoln, NE was the contractor on the building and Downey Well Drilling out of Lexington, NE was the well driller, City of Aurora Public Works Division Staff installed 3,800 feet of 16” PVC water main from the well to Beechwood Drive for connection to the existing water supply system.
