What is a Water Well?
If you live in the country or rural areas, there is a chance that you might not have a public water system available to you. However, there are options in providing water to your rural or remote location. You can either have a private water well or a central development well for your water supply system. Water below the surface of the ground can be found at various depths (Notice the graph). The majority of private water wells are drilled out, and depending on where the well is being drilled: you might find water at depths from 10 to 100 feet deep.
