Drilling for Water - Thirsty Work

Jose Navarez, left, and Rolando Mendoza unhook a heavy chain Monday afternoon while moving the next section of the drill shaft to be installed into position at Indian Hills Park in Gallup. The crew from Roswell, NM has set up a 110-foot tall drilling rig and anticipate they will need to reach a depth of nearly 4,000 feet before they hit water as they drill a new well to supplement the city's water supply.

Drill operators Alberto Marquez and Rolando Mendoza measure the next length of metal shaft to be hooked up Monday afternoon while drilling for water.
