Part 6 - Progress

The well drilling began on 11/17. After drilling down 150 feet they weren't able to find any usable water. This was a surprise because there was a working well nearby that had been there for many years. Instead of trying to go deeper they started digging in a different location. At 100 feet they found a water source that was able to produce 30 gallon a minute. After plugging the old well and the 150ft dry well they were back in business.

The footings were poured on 11/18. They also buried the new septic tank and the drain field was installed and approved. They have made excellent progress in only 3 days!! Here are some more photos.
