Engineer: Curtiss ready to drill new wells this fall
An engineer working for the village of Curtiss says two new wells should be online by early next year to help alleviate an ongoing water shortage in the small Clark County community.
“It took a long time to find water there, but now we’re optimistic we’ve found something we can work with,” said Mike Davy of Davy Engineering, who has been working with the village for years on its search for more water.
A special village board meeting is scheduled for Oct. 7 at 4 p.m. to award well drilling bids, which will be opened at 2 p.m. that day. In addition to establishing two new wells (numbers 11 and 12) east of the village park, Curtiss will also rehabilitate two older wells that have stopped producing significant quantities of water.
