Day 4 – New Well Team
The New well team drilled to 195 ft! We started the day by using the 7″ reaming bit to make the whole large enough for the casing. While some of us were drilling the others were preparing the gravel for the natural stone filter. Its a 2 step process. First you use a large metal screen to filter the larger stones, then you use a finer screen to sift out the smaller silt and clay. Also the kids were having a blast playing games and learning about good hygiene.
The hole is now ready now for one last ream to make sure the whole is wide enough to fit the PVC pipe casing.
