150 feet and Counting

As of yesterday the drill was down to 150' for the well! We should hit water around the 250' mark (I really hope that doesn't jinx us!). Then we have another 200' to go down to a final depth of 450'.

We want a deep water column to draw from for two reasons, first, we will be taking a lot of water to support around 800 people and eventually agriculture. So we're expecting the water level to be drawn down at least 50'. The other is this area has been experiencing a drought for the last year and water levels are at record lows, we want to be ready for future droughts too.
