Well Drillers Report Online By State

Things to look for:

- Static water level

- Date the well was drilled.  How many years ago determines the accuracy of the data, what month determines the depth of the aquifer (typically spring is the highest static water level and late summer is the lowest).

- Well casing. See if there is a transition from the diameter at the surface and what may be lower down.

- Pump depth. Generally, the electric pump depth is 5-10 ft above the total well depth.  A hand pump can not be installed below an electric pump. The difference between the static water level and the pump depth indicates how much “play” there is, static plus 10 is the general rule of thumb but the deeper the installation the better.

 

These states have the best online websites for finding your well online:

They all have a satellite image of the state and an icon to represent the location of every registered well in the state. Simply zoom into your property and click on the icon to get your well information. Most have a base map that you can select and layers that you can turn on and off to unclutter the screen. 

In most cases an additional click can get you’re the scanned original, handwritten well drillers report which can be printed for your records. Keep in mind that the static water level of your well may have changed since it was drilled.

These states have decent websites for finding your well online:

They all have a satellite image of the state.  Zoom into your property, you may have to click on the “grab” tool (a hand icon) to center the map.  Once you have your neighborhood located, you will have to use the draw tool to draw a rectangle or other shape around an area that includes your home, then the well icons will appear.  Wisconsin, you have to click on the map and a circle will appear with all the well icons.  Again look for layers and base maps.  Additional clicks may or may not get you the original hand written well log.

These states do not have a map-based search but have a database of wells: 

Some of the databases can be searched by the public some you have to have submit a search request.  Searches can often be done by address, the name of the homeowner who paid for the well to be drilled, PLS data, county, watershed or a well ID number.
