2007 Proved to be a difficult, yet rewarding, year for Wellspring. For the first time ever, a 10 day trip was approved – an increase from the traditional 7-day trips. The Wellspring delegation was comprised of several professionals, as well as key staff members. The goal of the delegation was to provide on-site advanced training in well drilling techniques and to provide an overview of aquifer protection and groundwater science. Due to limited communication with our counterparts in North Korea, the trip began with many unknowns. A well located at the Dochi Valley School provided an ideal training site for the first half of the trip. Wellspring’s time in country ended with one successful well drilled and another started. Strides were taken to encourage our North Korean counterparts to continue to work. At the year’s end, a total of four water wells were drilled.
