Exploratory well …

A drilling rig has been set up next to the new WREA substation north of Meeker on the Sulphur Creek road. “A company has leased our mineral rights and they are drilling an exploratory well,” Kelly Sheridan, the pilot for this ariel photo said of the work on his family’s property. Sheridan said the drilling has created some work for local contractors including an excavator, who built the pad and a local trucking company is being used to haul water.
