To those of you who prayed...here is a mini update.
We are at 485' of pure basalt! A huge answer to prayer. Our well driller says he's pretty confident we are out of the danger zone and should be total basalt all the way now! We should hit water Monday and hopefully it's soon!!
Why is this good news? Well, supposing all continues like this, we will only need 20' of steel casing and the rest will be PVC. The steel casing is $25-35 a foot and the plastic is $10!! And that's an awful lot of feet!! So we are praying we save around $15,000 total but we should know very soon!
Now we pray it stays basalt and we hit great water in the 500's!
