What Is a Drilled Well, Exactly?

A well is a hole that is drilled deep into the ground. The top portion of the well is lined with casing to prevent collapse and stop any contaminants from entering the water supply. A pump sits at the bottom of the well to move water up through pipes to a distribution line. A well cap is placed at the very top of the well to provide sanitary protection and safety.

How do I get a well drilled on my property?

Call a professional. Well-technicians are certified in water well drilling, which means they are licensed by the state. Any construction or repairs needed should be done by a professional.

What factors determine the cost of a new well? The largest factor in determining the cost of a new well is the well depth. This can be tricky, because we will not know the actual well depth of a new well until we drill it. We rely on information on other wells in the area to estimate the depth of a new well.
