On Wednesday, July 26, Traut Companies began drilling a new 600 gallon-per-minute well in the City park at 220 W. Adams Street. Construction of the well will take approximately three months. Regular work hours will be from 7:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. Monday through Friday. During the development of Well No. 8, explosives will be used to create a cavity in the rock below ground. The well’s cavity will be located at an approximate depth ranging from 400 to 500 feet below ground. The well will be capped at the end of the project until the well house is constructed in 2021. The playground will be closed during construction of the well.
