A crew with GeoSpec Drilling of Gretna arrived in Wauneta late Monday night. Tuesday morning the crew, led by Bo Bonn, began drilling a test well which will be used to determine the layers in the soil by Wauneta’s village wells. The test well is the first step in determining if the grout study, which will be completed by Clean Well Technologies and the State of Nebraska, may be a solution to the arsenic levels in the Village water supply, which are above the allowable levels. Mid-day Tuesday Bonn indicated he hoped to have initial results to share with the Wauneta Village Board of Trustees at their regular meeting on Tuesday night. The meeting will be held after Breeze print deadlines and will be covered in next week’s issue. (Sheri Hink-Wagner | The Wauneta Breeze)
