More water probes OK’d at golf course
By a 3-2 vote, Clinton city councilmen Tuesday night authorized up to four more geoprobes and another test well at the Riverside Golf Course as the city continues its search for water from the Washita Alluvium.
The same engineering company which supervised seven geoprobes and one test well at the course last fall will also oversee the new ones. That’s Professional Engineering Consultants of Tulsa, which will be paid an additional $27,676 for its services, bringing its total fees for the golf course work so far to $137,219.
City Manager Steve Hewitt said the original contract called for two test wells but only one was drilled. He indicated the second one probably still will be drilled; if so, that leaves two more yet to come.
