A water pumping test in Park Rapids is netting positive results so far, according to engineers.

"It's going great," said Ulteig Engineers' Bala Vairavan. "We've had good, positive results and are moving on to the next step with pilot testing."


The test well, located near the northwest water tower, is pumping water from an aquifer about 160 feet deep.

"It's a little deeper to stay away from the nitrates," Vairavan said.
