Seems there is an exploratory drilling project around the capped ( and supposedly filled) Storrs water shaft. This is located near the tintersection of Enterprise Dr. & Main Av. on the Dickson city/Scranton border.

Chris,

I was offroading around the area and it looks like all they have done recently is add more fences. They have pretty much fenced off the entire area now. When I first posted about this months back, you can swing around the fence and get right up on the shaft. Now it's completely surrounded, going down to the road and all.
