EGGI Drills High Yielding Exploration Test Well for Forsyth County, Georgia

The crystalline bedrock that underlies Forsyth County Georgia is commonly not thought of as a highly productive aquifer, however, properly located wells can tap specific, highly fractured bedrock features and achieve high yields. One such exploratory target was recently located and drilled by EGGI at the McClure Project site in Forsyth County. At the request of the Forsyth County Water and Sewer Authority (FCWSA), EGGI utilized its proven exploratory method and identified a number of drilling targets.

Status/Results:

Exploratory test wells drilled at this site produced a combined airlift yield of nearly 700 gpm (1 MGD).  This project was funded using GEFA monies and is being used as an example for other communities who might be seeking lower cost options for developing additional water supply sources. A groundwater testing program is currently being performed to assess the long term sustainable yield. The intent is to develop a series of high yielding wells in a single well field.
