Bwater when the well from which
the town is served caved in. The
well, dug Just about a year ago
was walled in for 142 feet, caved
below, the casing. .
Workers begun immediately to
cleaning out the well. It was de
cided to go through the layer of
rock at the bottom of the well to
a depth that will be adequate to
prevent another accident.
When the workers made their
way through the first layer of
rock they discovered a bed of oys
ter shells. It is-believed that the
bed was alive at some time before
the flood, that possibly Kenans
ville was at that time on the coast.
- The well -diggers continued and
went through a second layer of
rock and found sand & pure water.
The town is being served from
