Medient Studios begins drilling water well

EFFINGHAM CO., GA (WTOC) -

The soon to be largest studioplex of its kind in North America is one step closer to construction.

Medient Studios in Effingham County has already started drilling a water well which will be able to draw 150,000 gallons of water a day for the studioplex's operational needs.

The company said this is an instrumental step in moving forward with the project.

"Water is always an important part of any project, especially something as big as what is planned for this property, and with the help of the IDA and the professional help of PINCO drilling, we're excited that it's going to help us begin moving toward completion of the project," said Jay Self of Medient Studios.

It could take between 60 to 90 days to finish the drilling.
