What is the difference between a shallow well and a deep well?
A shallow well has superficially supplied water, usually from sand formation. They generally run about 50’ deep, but could be shallower or deeper depending on the formations. A deep well generally derives its water supply from the aquifer. Its name can be deceiving, as it can be as shallow as 40’ or as deep as several hundred feet depending on the formations. On the average, a deep well in Central Florida runs in a range between 100’-500’ deep, depending on the location.
