The "Town of Pine Haven Water System Master Plan," completed by Stetson Engineering in 2000, recommended that a second source supply well be developed to meet increased demands associated with growth and development and to provide system redundancy. The town currently has only one source of supply, the Keyhole No. 1 Well. If this well should fail, the community would be out of water as soon as the storage tank emptied. To increase the reliability of service to the water system, it would be advantageous to have a second supply well.

A successful Madison Formation Aquifer test well was drilled and tested in August/September of 2002. The town is requesting Level III funding for 2003 to tie the new well into the water supply system.
