Also got an update on new well costs. $22 a foot now.
There also has to be a minimum charge to cover setup costs, I think.
If I get around to doing this project in a couple of years, I think a well cleanout would be vital, so that the 700 dollar pump would not damage itself with grit and crap.
And thanks for the research, Chris. Nice to have some baseline numbers.
