When we went to the site after the weekend, there was water everywhere. Running down the hill, puddled around the equipment, you name it.
As we looked around for the source, it soon became clear that water was coming out of the TOP of the well. Between the fracking and hydrostatic pressure, we’ve essentially created our very own “flowing artesian well.” Which came to a surprise to all of us.
The good news is that we were scheduled to start the curtain drain that same day. So the folks from Rolfe pumped out the well and put in an overflow line that connects to the master drain.
The next six months are going to be interesting….
