Old thread much too long to follow.
Father's day is gone now and we are promised some beastly hot weather ahead.
So now Drillers and associated workers should be back on the job again soon. Lets keep these threads alive!
Could be that water from river is too low to supply the tank pad or maybe the tank pad pump to impoundment has much bigger capacity.
Pipeline as of yesterday is still not connected across Broughton Hollow road. Maybe a "Silent" pump is not available to boost water to Painter well site yet. "Silent" pump would have to be powered by electricity I would surmise. Neighbor who lives only a hundred yards from pump site complained about the noise Cardinal pump made last year. This year pipeline is much bigger in diameter and was not ridged like Cardinal had installed.
Thanks, Granddadd! Following!
Preparations being made for a very large pad on Knox road? Can anyone add information on this info?
I believe that a couple of my postings disappeared too or else was never posted.
thanks, guys. they're not going to spam, they're just not coming. Oh, well......much easier to follow new thread!
Minimal activity at Painter well for the last few days. Too hot for me to be outside watching anyway
Seems to take forever for various contractors to get a complicated job like well drilling finished and in to production. Prospects look pretty good for the Flat Castle project however!
Booster pump at Broughton hollow road crossing to Painter well has also been installed this morning by Tetra. A crew was working spreading straw along pipeline. Pump appears much bigger then the one Cardinal had last year.
We drove by the pipeline crossing this morning just before 11:00 am. Pipe has now expanded to full diameter. So water must be flowing to P. well now. Long time in coming it seems!
They may have to fix the road as it is rapidly deteriorating. we just heard a heavy truck rumbling up the road toward P gaswell ROW. Too many trees and brushy growth to see what it was. Will be watching for additional activity.
