Well 7 Progress Continues - August 31, 2017
The final depth required for Water Well 7 was reached and the process of cementing the sections of steel is underway. At a depth of over 540 feet the outside wall of the steel sections are being filled with a cement mix called “drilling slurry”. A total of approximately 60 to 70 cubic yards of this mixture will be required to ensure the water well hole remains in place. During this phase of the project several “plumbness and alignment” tests are conducted to ensure the well hole is straight.
