Well bottom reached

From the Mojave Road Report

After a long break, Eagle Well Drilling was back on the job starting today through January 8. There was a lot of wind and cold weather while they were here, but they managed to get to the bottom and have the casing installed.

We had planned to go down to 850 feet, but at 835 feet or so we were at solid rock. It wasn't likely the quality of the well could beimporved by going deeper, so we called a halt.

The casing is set at 830 feet. Water typically stands at 560 feet in Goffs, so we are into plenty of water.
