Powell Christian Louboutin White Sneakers
has been drilling for something uranium, coal, gold, oil since 1967. But, since 1986, he drilled for nothing but water.
300 years, people in Texas have been drinking well water and doing just fine. As long as it not been contaminated, it absolutely safe for human and animal consumption, he said.
Which means Powell and his brass witching rods can be found searching for likely well sites at homes within the city limits, and on ranches and farms in the outlying areas.
The whole process starts when Powell arrives with his witching rods thin brass rods bent into an L. He holds them lightly in his hands, and after offering his brief prayer, walks back and forth waiting for the rods to cross.
Water well drilling more art than science
If water is found at the bottom of a test hole, Powell will widen the hole (according to state law the well must be three inches wider than the casing), run a pipe the casing to the bottom, then backfill with gravel. The bottom 10 feet of the pipe, he said, is perforated, to allow water to seep in. The top of the well is sealed with a 10 foot concrete cap.
Within the Abilene city limits, Powell said, most water is to be found near current creek beds like Catclaw, Elm and Lytle creeks at depths of 30 to 50 feet. There are some aquifers in the area, he said, but they are largely brine and at much greater depths. Freshwater drawn from the wells is potable, he said, but may have a higher mineral content than treated city Christian Louboutin Shoes Pictures water.

with everyone being so busy, you may just have to go with whoever can get to you soonest. Sometimes, it comes down to who is available, he said.
your well, the sooner it will be affected by drought, Powell said. now, I even got some 100 foot wells that are suffering. you thinking of hiring someone to drill a well on your property, there are two important things to keep in mind, Powell said. all well drillers have to be licensed by the state, but all of us drillers have a reputation that sort of proceeds us. Ask around and make sure you working with someone who done good work in the past, he said.
A small pump is attached to the pipe, which pulls water to feed into a storage tank or an optional pressure tank system. All told, an entire well, pump and tank system can typically be installed for less than $3,000.
Most wells within the city limits run 30 Buy Christian Louboutin Men Shoes
to 50 feet deep, and produce anywhere from 5 to 150 gallons per minute. But, because of the extended drought conditions, even some of the well water is drying up.
A test hole runs $10 per foot, Powell said, and a finished well runs $25 per foot.
no science to it, really. I watch the rods, and I really can feel it when they move. After that, I spend an hour and drill a test hole to see if there water. If there is, I drill the real well. With no problems, it can take about a day to finish, he said.
Wayne Lisenbee, assistant director of water utilities for the city of Abilene, said there are between 400 and 600 addresses listed in Abilene that have well water for irrigation purposes.
I go out witching, I say a little prayer: 'Dear Lord, please help me find this guy some water. Then, I go out with my witching rods and try to find the best place to drill my test well, he said.
this point, I say most of my customers are folks who need water for their livelihood ranchers and farmers with crops and livestock to maintain. But, there are also folks who have put as much as $100,000 into their landscaping, and they need to protect that investment, as well, he said.
