Re: Witching/Divining rods
I had a partner in a Development company who really believed in the stuff. He hired a guy who was suppose to be the best of the best and brought him here from the English Countryside at a cost of about $12,000. The guy located 4-promising areas for drilling and we spent $40,000 on 4-dry holes.
Fast forward 20-years and I am the President of a Water Company in Utah. I own a canyon with an Artesian spring which supplies all of our water. We need more water and decided to drill a new well. The well driller told us he felt where ever we drilled in my canyon we would hit water. One of the guys on the BOD had a guy come out and witch. The guy picked a spot where he said we would get 25 GPM. We drilled the well and got 125 GPM (5 times the amount). So now you have to wonder who did the better job, the Well Digger who said we would get water anywhere in the canyon or the guy who stood in the middle of a canyon full of water and said drill here.
