Drilling a well

The one contingency in our Purchase & Sale is that the site must have good water, so the first thing that needs to be done is to have a well drilled. Here comes the drill rig. This truck/machine costs $600,000!

They started yesterday and made it through the bedrock at 60-80 feet. A typical well can be 300 - 600 feet in depth. We get charged by how deep they have to drill to find water.

Our guy - Mike Sullivan - expects to finish the job today. It is pouring rain where we are.

It rained pretty much the entire month of June here in the Northeast. I was hoping for a shift in July, but the first two days have continued in the same weather pattern. Makes me feel grateful that my work takes place indoors!
