Prater Water Well Drilling of Bowie completes a well on the courthouse lawn Tuesday morning.

It took less than an hour and $1,800 Tuesday for drillers to find water under the courthouse lawn as Prater Water Well Drilling of Bowie completed a well expected to produce 5-6 gallons per minute.

Once a pump and pressure tank have been installed, the water supply will be plumbed to the courthouse sprinkler system. Once complete, the project is expected to cost $4,000, to be paid from the courthouse renovation fund.

The driller hit a sheet of water at a depth of 18 feet, and again at 38 feet. The well is 40 feet deep. Drilling equipment arrived at 8:15 a.m. and completed the well shortly before 9 a.m.

County commissioners approved the project during a regular  meeting April 14. The well is located on the northwest corner of the courthouse, near the county war memorial.

  4. I’m impressed, I must say. Rarely do I encounter a blog that’s both equally educative and interesting, and without a doubt, you’ve hit the nail on the head.

  6. I think everything published made a bunch of sense. But, what about this? suppose you added a little information? I mean, I don’t wish to tell you how to run your website, but suppose you added a post title that makes people desire more? I mean %BLOG_TITLE% is kinda boring. You could look at Yahoo’s home page and watch how they create news headlines to grab viewers to click. You might add a related video or a related pic or two to get readers interested about everything’ve got to say. Just my opinion, it would make your blog a little livelier.|
