Meanwhile back at the property we started to drill for water using a firm called Dahlman. Within 20 feet we hit a muddy trickle of water at 2gpm. We could use this water but it would require an expensive treatment system and a 1000 gallon holding tank. So we went deeper and at 35 feet we hit 40gpm of clear water! The next day they put in the casing and pumping system and ran it for four hours, and all looked great. Unfortunately within two days the well silted in and none of the screening systems they tried could prevent the well from running dry. They continued drilling down to 85 feet, and again the well silted in. Looks like next stop is 200 feet?
One weekend Dan’s cousin Paul had an impromptu get together at his house with his brother John & wife, Michelle, & kids; and youngest brother Jim. It was a beautiful day, with Paul barbequing drunken chicken, hamburgers and hot dogs. Another great day with family.
