Abstract: High Desert Water Well Drilling

By: A.F. Robertson

Well drilling for a water supply in the "high desert" of southern California
presents an interesting and challenging set of problems. These problems are
accentuated when the drilling is on a Marine Corp weapons training facility.
The Navy's Seabees are often involved in such projects. A brief look at
those operations provides an interesting contrast to the situation normally
encountered in Florida drilling.
Two wells drilled in July 1985 at 29 Palms, California penetrated about 300
feet through sand and rock exploring for possible water supplies. The pro-
cedure used and difficulties encountered are discussed in this talk and
the results are described.
