Outside my door

This week, there will be a drilling of a monitoring well. I knew that they were coming out at the end of the working day yesterday, but I was still interested to see the drilling truck outside the cabin when I got home from a day of teaching.


This morning, the drillers came out at 7AM and started setting up for work.

The drilling will continue until a depth of about 200' -- when it hits bedrock -- and people will be working for about five days, slowly auguring out the sediment and hauling it out of the forest, monitoring the progress and the water, and then installing the well and capping it.
