Re: well drilling


Wells are drilled on mountains all the time. Whoever said it can't be done may have been referring to how you get the rig up to the location, there is absolutely no difference drilling on a mountain versus anywhere else as long as you can get the rig into position. As to how deep you have to drill to hit water, that is a local issue. I suggest you talk to local drilling companies about the specifics of your project, certainly no one on an internet chat forum can possibly know the details of your particular project.
