The City of Middleton needed a new well to support city-wide development. For a number of reasons a location in the eastern part of the water distribution system was desired. Selection of a site was complicated because of the presence of old municipal and private landfills and the proximity of the Belle Fontaine Spring, Pheasant Branch Conservancy and Lake Mendota. Groundwater modeling and expertise provided by the Wisconsin Geological and Natural History Survey was instrumental in evaluation of the impact of the new well on local water resources and selection of a site that met the City's needs.
