The first well
The excavation of the first well, Well A, began in June 1932 and 1933.
The well was excavated to a depth of 20 m under the guidance of water engineer Simcha Blass.
The first pumping of water from the well was on March 31, 1933, about a month before the transfer of the barracks from the Rishonim house to the permanent point began.
