Drilling the well



Summer of 2005. We had Dave Newton of Worland WY drill our well. His daughter 'witched' for the water. I never really believed it was for real until I watched her, then she had me try it and and yes, I can find water too! The rods really do move on their own, what a strange sensation that is! She said it was 75 ft. and flowing east to west and knew how wide the underground source was. Yup, they found water at 72 ft. and plenty of it!

Wow, I had always heard "witching" for water works, but have never seen it first-hand. What a fun experience for you!

My Dad Always talked about witching for water. It is a strange phenomenon. I don't understand it, but I know it works.

So glad you found plenty of water.
