W. Womer <br />Water Superintendent <br />Edmonds, Washington. <br />Dear 1dr. Womer <br />As I indicated to you during my recent inspection of the Edmonds Water supply, <br />the type of well casing being employed on the dug well now under construction <br />at the south artesian +ells will not meet with the approval of this Department. <br />At that time I indicated that the corrugated culvert pipe could serve as an <br />inside form in order to provide a four -inch concrete casing which would be <br />entirely impervious. <br />After consideri.g this problem further I am firmly convinced that a dug well <br />type of construction is not suitable for the ultimate development of that par- <br />ticular type of water -bearing formation. The situation as I see it is some- <br />what as follows: irility a dug well it will be impossible to penetrate deep en- <br />ough to -properly tap the artesian flow and the only water which will be obtain- <br />ed will be shallow ground water and in small quantitjt. On the other hand, <br />if penetration is deep enough to tap the true artesian flow, which vvie have <br />reason to believe exists there, the casing Y,ould then fill with the quicksand <br />and it is quite possible that caving may result at some distant poir.:t such <br />as occurred several years age. <br />L believe before any more: duvelopmu-nt is carried out in this area that it <br />would be :vorth while to employ the services of a competent well driller and <br />sink a hest hole for the purpose: or: ascertair.ir..g the presence or absence of a <br />sufficient volume of water and, secondly , to supply information for the type <br />of well construction which will develop the ima_ximum amount of water from that <br />particular \rater -bearing stratum. <br />
