Well Drilling March 2023

Drillers arrived on-site Monday, March 13, 2023 to continue the process of drilling for new community wells. New community wells are now being drilled adjacent to the 2011 test well in Block 50 – north of Carpenter Creek and south of the current recycling depot.

We anticipate the drillers being on-site approximately 4-6 weeks, with drilling taking place between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m. on weekdays and from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. on weekends, although they do not typically work on weekends. No drilling will take place on statutory holidays.

The public is reminded to stay clear of all operations and direct their questions to the Village office. Trails may be closed while crews work in and around these public spaces – do not use trails marked as closed or cross any barriers. For a reminder about treatment of workers, visit this link:

We appreciate the community’s patience through this process.
