DIY Water Wells

Yesterday I received an email from a reader who has a website about drilling your own water well. I like it. Not only does the site provide in-depth information about how to develop your own water supply; it addresses the possibility that you may not wish to report your new water supply to the county. I like that. Too many information sources go out of their way to withhold information that may empower people to bypass the official control mongers, with the preconceived notion that we are all subservient to, and nothing without, the "authorities".
Anyone who is planning to develop a new water supply on his or her land can benefit from this information.
Check it out, here.

What a coincidence. Ray just finished putting in a new point up at the farm. It's a shallow well because we're lucky enough to have good water less than 30 feet down.

We actually went through the permitting process for a professionally drilled well about ten years ago. Paid $100 to have a health inspector tell us what we already knew -- it had to be at least 100 feet away from the septic tank. Never did get that particular well put in, and, after dealing with the health department, decided any future water projects would be very low key.

You are very fortunate to have good water that close to the surface. Wish I could say the same.
