“If you can’t be in awe of Mother Nature, there’s something wrong with you” – Alex Trebek

Funny story.

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.

Yes, that’s water coming out of the top of the well. No, it’s not supposed to happen.

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.

That blue line now directs any overflow from the well into the curtain drain that runs across the back of the house

The next six months are going to be interesting….
