Tim Cleath hired to do water well geology
December 12th, 2009
Several years before Bob Howard had applied for and secured a permit to drill a water well on Cave Landing. I decided to go ahead and drill the water well so that I would have a source of water on top of the ridgeline that could be used to fight a forest fire. (When I was a small boy my parents house burned down on Christmas Eve and I have been very nervous about fires since then.) I hired Tim Cleath, a well known local geologist, to locate the best spot for drilling. Tim and I walked the property together while he provided a fascinating commentary about the different geological forces that had built the hills. Tim picked the spot and recommended a well drilling company to do the work.
