The Project

Geothermal Well Drilling

Setting Up

One of the most time consuming steps is getting the equipment to the site and setting up. There were three vehicles; the drilling rig, a support truck with a water tank, and a pickup truck.

We had to move a small tree to give the drilling rig enough room. Metal plates were laid across the sidewalk to prevent damage from the heavy drilling rig.

Once the rig was leveled, water hoses were hooked up and a bunch of other stuff was done that I didn't catch. Then they were ready to begin drilling.
