I always said I would be the queen of this mountain if only I had water.....today I offically have water and have become Queen! Some of you may remember my heart break summer of 04 when we drilled a 380 foot ten grand dry well. That hole did have some water in it that we figure was from seep along the bedrock. Then a few months ago the earth quake made our 380 ft bore hole into a 120 foot bore hole. We finally decided we could wait not longer, bought a bunch of 4 " well casing and set out to see what we could see. We were able to push through the plug at 110 feet but were stopped at 170 feet. Saved up some more money 600.00 to buy a pump, some special submersible wire and some back polly tubing and began our experiement last Sunday. Pumped 195 gal from the well (which then brought the water level below the pump level) with the pump hanging at 150 feet down the hole and the static water level at 22 feet in this 6 " hole. then 60 hours later we pumped another 195 gal's, then 48 hours later we pumped another 195 gal's, and today 24 hours later we pumped again and got 195 gal's! I am dancing in the mud now! It looks like we can get about 1200 gal's a week from our dry well which is now a seep spring! I can water a little grass, a big garden, do the wash and shower more often...I am the QUEEN of the mountain and my kingdom is heaven to me!
