Nov 17, 2016

Dug Wells

Historical type of wells,

Larger diameter (18-48 inch).

Curbing material is usually concrete crocks with loose joints.

Water enters well through loose casing joints.

Older dug wells were hand-dug.

Some were installed with bucket augers.

Low well yield, but casing stores 100’s of gallons.

Highly vulnerable to contamination


Large Diameter Low Yield Wells

Installed in low yield areas 

Casing material is slotted fiberglass (National Sanitation Foundation certified). Upper 25 feet of casing is grouted.

More sanitary than old dug wells. 

Requires unique pitless adapter (due to corrugated casing wall).

Only allowed under a deviation where conventional wells can not be drilled.
