Deep Well Update



Just prior to all of the rain our deep well went down.  The underground formation has been producing sand which prematurely wore the pumping components.  This in turn damaged the 150 Hp motor which drives the pumps (bowls as they are referred to).  The well is about 980" deep with the pump set at about 800'.   Currently the motor is in TX being evaluated.  We hope to have the well back in operation within the next few weeks.  In the meantime, we are using water from Honey Lake (when needed).

This is what the camera looks like that was sent down the well.
 
To insure that the well is in good shape, a camera was sent down and a video was produced.  Everything looked good.
