water and power

The past several weeks have been spent constructing a small “power house” to centralize our electric and water service. We selected Richard Simmons well drilling to find a flow substantial enough to support the demand, and after drilling down over 500′, 18 gallons/minute was decided would be adequate. Our local electrical cooperative, BARC, was also on site to bury over a 1/4 mile of primary electric cable and set 2 transformers. After all the ditch digging and excavation work, it became evident that we needed to install a subsurface drainage network to route the natural spring water that was percolating into most of the open ditches. This afforded us the opportunity to improve the topography around the building sites to better the surface drainage too.
