Geocache Description:

[LV] Slēpnis pie "neapstādināma urbuma". Ieteicams auto novietot ~70m pirms slēpņa - lai gan pa šo ceļu bieži nebraukā, tas ir samērā šaurs un līkumains.

[EN] A cache near an "unstoppable borehole". Consider parking ~70m before the cache - although the road is not frequently used, it's narrow and windy.

[LV] Slēpnis novietots ~70m no urbuma, pats urbums ir pie stāvvietas punkta. Šo urbumu izveidoja padomju laikos. Saskaņā ar vietējo leģendu, padomju urbēji bija vai nu nekompetenti, vai vienaldzīgi, un urbums netika pienācīgi noslēgts. Dažādā gruntsūdeņu līmeņa dēļ te šobrīd ir nepārtraukta ūdens plūsma. Ūdens lietojams pārtikā, bet varētu būt paliels dzelzs daudzums.

[EN] This cache has been placed ~70m from a borehole, but the borehole itself can be found near the parking area. The borehole was created during the soviet era. According to local lore, the soviet workers were either incompetent, or didn't care, and did not properly seal the borehole. There's now a constant flow of water, caused by the differences in the water table. Water is pottable, although the iron levels could be high.
