New community water supply

YMCA Camp Becket
Becket, Massachusetts


YMCA Camp Becket, in the Bershire Mountains of Massachusetts, has been a leading summer camp for boys for over 100 years.

The camp needed a new water supply well to increase capacity for camp expansion. Water quality improvement was also sought due to encroachment around historical water supply wells.

SES teamed with Cedar View Projects, Inc. to test and permit a new community water supply well. SES installed data logging equipment and assisted Cedar View Projects in monitoring a step test and 48 hour pump and 24 hour recovery test. The Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection (MassDEP) approved the well which now provides pristine water for the entire camp, and will allow future camp expansion.
