"W e reclaimed the site once. But because of the drought, and the cows tearing it up, it got to be a sandy knoll again. It's still pending. If we get some rain out there, everything should be fine by the end of next year. It is very arid. It is basically on a sand dune. I will probably never drill another well in Colorado. Too stringent for me.
