I bet they do! I'm not familiar with California's water laws nor state drilling regulations, but my guess is the drillers are doing everything themselves and folks are reluctant to spend time and money engineering a well, especially if there are emergency provisions in place... I do appreciate the heads up, I'll do some research, see what's going on over there and if there is a way to parlay a business envelopment trip into a steelhead trip.Pretty much runs all winter through mid April. With the drought a shit ton of people need wells!!
