1 Answer

A dug well is typically 3' (1m) across and less than 25' (7.5m) deep and constructed by lining a hole with concrete crocks. A drilled well is typically 4-6" (10-15cm) in diameter and over 50' (15m) deep with a steel 'casing' (lining). Newer drilled wells are required to be capped above ground level, although there are still many older drilled wells where the 'head' (top of the well) is sealed and buried below the frost line. more
