BOX ELDER OFFICIALS HIRE DRILLER FOR TEST WELL

Box Elder County commissioners have hired PC Exploration to drill a 500-foot test well on the proposed Box Elder County Landfill site on top of Box Elder County's Little Mountain.

Commissioner Jay Hardy said the well will cost $8,530. If no water is found the well will be capped. If water is hit, the well can be cased for an additional cost of $4,335.Hardy says groundwater is expected to be more than 500 feet below the surface, which would possibly allow the county to be exempted from expensive landfill liners and leachate control.
