Re: I knew the noise was comming
They drilled a well about 500 yards down the road from my camp several years ago. Pad prep was underway by opening day of deer season, but no one worked there that Monday.
Rest of the two weeks it was dozers from sunup 'til sundown, but no one was bothered much by it. Lots of noise during the actual drilling operation.
Most of the real noise came when they moved in to frack it in the spring. They moved the fracking tanks and fluid for days on end, from another well about a mile away. Trucks up and down past my camp well into the night while I was there But they also brined the gravel road, so it was the best year for no dust in anyone's memory.
Pump trucks howling 24/7 when they began the fracking process itself. Since then, nada in the way of noise or commotion. The fracking tank pad had been there ever since, because they'd thought about eventually drilling another well at the same location.
Went up to camp last Thursday and the additional pad is now gone, seeded back to a hay field again. Cousin said it took them less than a week to remove the pad and restore the field.
They pushed all the crushed limestone to one end of the pad into a huge pile and the twp. boys have hauled it all over the place. Put some on gravel roads to stabilize wet areas, some driveway entrances and all the driveways over the hill at the local cemetery.
Free of charge, wish I'd been there to get some for my driveway, but missed that boat.
