Well and Water Update

The irrigation main line contractor and well motor installation companies have been going hard the past 8 days and now we are only days away from testing out the delivery system. The project has been going very well with everyone working together to complete the field work in a very short period of time and with little disruption to members.

The connection of the new main line from the well  to the old existing system main line was made today Monday November 17th, 2014

This system will be temporary until the ponds are excavated and the new pump station installed by next spring.

By Thursday all the piping connections to the well will be made and a generator will be used to power the well motor for testing. It is expected that we will need to rely on this system until spring, which will necessitate more daytime watering.
