ENON, Ohio (WDTN) - 2 NEWS Investigates found out that Crabtree Well and Pump drilled deeper than they typically do for residential wells after the owner of the Clark County property asked them to.
We obtained copies of other well drilling reports in the same area and found most of them don't go deeper than 160 feet.
This particular well was deeper than 300 feet when the crew hit the natural gas pocket.
There’s no set rule that says you can't dig that deep, but drilling company owner, Jake Crabtree tells me they typically don't go that far.
He said they made an exception in Clark County at the property owner's request because he says the area has a lower water table.
Crabtree says drilling deeper would give them access to more water.
Of course, they hit natural gas instead.
