Drilled primary well site with Oconee Well Drillers. Well made 2-3 gallons at 325 feet, went to 600 feet, no additional water. We will have to try fracturing the well to see if we can connect this very expensive hole in the ground with the groundwater in natural occurring fractures. It might work; it might not. The bottom line is that we need more water to run the nursery.
The drilling rig is friggin’ enormous.
