LAKE OF THE WOODS, CA (Tuesday, June 25, 2013 at 2:45 p.m.)—Drilling to 700 feet at the Cuddy Hall well in Lake of the Woods yielded only 10 gallons per minute (gpm), and so the effort has been abandoned.
A second and third well site are now being explored, one west of the Our Lady of the Snows Catholic Church, another near the old gas station near Lockwood Valley Road.
See the full details in this week’s issue of The Mountain Enterprise, on stands throughout the area on Thursday morning.
LAKE OF THE WOODS, CA (Sunday, June 23, 2013)—Lake of the Woods water operator Rafael Molina, Jr. said the drilling in Lake of the Woods has resumed and, as of Friday, no hard rock was slowing the work. “They are in gravel. They are saying we are going to be in good shape,” Molina said. Once they are satisfied they have reached the appropriate depth, a pump test will be run and then a ‘Title 22′ water test will be required for the State Board of Health to assure the water is healthy before the LOW system’s most productive well is back online.”
We will continue to report here as updates are available.
