Connecticut has experienced a drought this summer and it just bit us in the butt this morning.

Not totally out but it's taking forever to recover.
So much so that they put a electrical device on that protects the well pump and then strongly suggested
hydrofracking as far less expensive than drilling deeper.

Anyone ever have this done?

Is that a common thing with water wells? How much does that cost? Do the weenies protest water fracking? "Now my well water tastes like water!" ;)

A lot of controversy about Fracking, including some areas where i see posted they have banned it.

I haven't seem "fracking" of water wells around here, but they do Hydo-fracturing which is limited to the local casing or immediate collection area.

Yes, that's the process...and thanks much for posting that.
Very informative.
Especially from the maintenance aspect.
I was not aware that a well should be looked after so frequently.
