The Dominican Republic was the site for our final testing of the EXP-50 “Explorer” Portable Hand Drilling System. Brookwood Community Church has an ongoing outreach to the people west of Santo Domingo. By partnering with a local church, Brookwood has been able to make a significant impact on the community of Las Brisas del Este. Some of the projects have included building and equipping a permanent medical clinic and church facilities. As for us, this was a demo run – complete with its ups and downs. We were not able to complete a successful well here, but part of our equipment (the cracking bit) was used to break through a cement wall to fix a major electrical hazard at the medical clinic.
The Hydrolog was run at an elevation of 102 ft. in a suburban area with much previous construction debris. Reddish, almost volcanic soil. At 11 feet, coral was hit and drilling stopped. Reports of possible drilling in the rural, interior regions of the country. Reports of brackish water around island’s perimeter.
