Don, I found out that the new well just dug behind the Zanoni post
office is 750 feet. Coline said the cost will likely be over $10,000.
The well driller found water at 350 feet but insufficient flow; again
at 500 feet but still moderate flow; the owner, Paul Rose said I want
plenty of water. He gets sixty gallons a minute but is paying dear for it.
