“Well, Well, Well: A Deep Dive into Our Latest Endeavor”

Greetings, fellow farm enthusiasts! The latest chapter in our container farm narrative takes us to the heart of the earth, where drilling the well becomes the cornerstone of our water journey. Now, I regret to inform you that I couldn’t be on-site for the well’s grand unveiling, and, unfortunately, the crew on the ground couldn’t capture any usable video footage. But worry not, there’s still plenty to spill about our underground adventure!

The drill reached a commendable depth of 460 feet, navigating the intricate layers beneath our farm. According to the Missouri Department of Natural Resources, a steel casing was a must, extending down to 80 feet. Yet, it was at approximately 120 feet that we stumbled upon a fascinating revelation – an 18-inch-wide crack laden with mud and sediment.

To outsmart this geological surprise, we strategically inserted a PVC liner down to a depth of 360 feet. This move ensures that the water we’ll be pumping originates from well below the troublesome crack, steering clear of any murky interference. Additionally, it acts as a safeguard, preventing any unwanted leaching from the steel casing into our precious water source.

Now, as we speak, the concrete pad is set, laying the groundwork for the well house, which will contain the pressure tank and water filtration equipment, ensuring a clean and efficient water supply for our farm.

Construction photos are already in the works, so stay tuned for a visual journey into the heart of our watery conquest. The well’s been drilled, the crack’s been cracked, and the concrete’s been poured – we’re on the brink of witnessing the birth of our water sanctuary. Exciting times ahead! 💦🏡
