Imperial Valley Press. VOL. IX. WATER FLOWING FROM DEEP WELL Holtville's Experiment! Proves Existence of Ground Reservoir Water Plane Pierced at Depth of More Than Eight Hundred Feet and Beneath Thirty-Foot Stratum of Sandstone— Other Wells to be Drill ed in the Valley. Artesian water was developed in the Holtville well last Tuesday at a depth of 852 feet and is now rising two and a half inches above the top of a two inch pipe. The water is pure, clear and soft, without any mineral taste or sign of alkali, and the temperature is 102 degrees. The drillers think the pressure is sufficient to raise the wat er from 25 to 35 feet above the top of the casing when it is piped to' a tank. No accurate measurement of the flow in gallons per minute or miner's inches had been made when the drillers furnished this informa tion. The well was drilled by the Coachel la Development Company, and paid for by the citizens of Holtville. A rotary hydraulic drill was used and the hole was bored in thirtee...
