Rain, sleet…or even spring snow didn’t stop the drilling at the directional water well site.
The drilling portion of the directional water well was completed on Sunday, May 17th. The directional borehole was successfully geophysically logged, and constructed. The well is currently being developed and tested. The directional well now connects to the vertical portion of the well that was recently drilled near Monarch Blvd. and Hidden Pointe Blvd. The project is expected to increase production without needing to drill several additional vertical wells to keep up with peak demands. Upon completion, the well will be one of the deepest and longest directional water wells drilled in North America. Read more about the directional well in the next issue of the Metro District News, coming this summer.
