The test at Tarman Springs is producing 20 gpm, but the draw down is much less. It is somewhere between 10 and 40 gpm which is not what we expected. Peiffer site we are also going to start test there. John High is ready to send NPDES permit and information to Andy Stottlemyer for Erosion and sediment control.
