Well Update

The driller has been done for more than a week. It was not an easy go of it for him as the well kept collapsing. He ended up having to case the entire depth, 500 ft., with steel. A well that doesn't collapse can have PVC pipe in the bottom half. The driller charges by the matter what. In terms of man hours and materials this job was more expensive for him than if he had hit solid rock.
This is the wellhead and the mess. Click the pics for enlarged views.

Today the pump people showed up to install the pump and pump out the well a couple of times. Look! We have water! Lots of it! Quality still unknown but I have faith.
We are probably going to have to move that little blue spruce in order to get a trench to the house.
