I have an old artisian well on the property. I’m going to get a manual pump for it and run a line down. At least until I can get my auto standby generator I’ll have water from my well to use.
8 days without power during an ice storm in 2008 made me a believer. Even if a SHTF event doesn’t happen I’ll be prepare for the worst.
Although not affected by that ice storm that is exactly what got my butt in gear.
We bought a semi-rural property in 2009 and I observed that there were two switches on the circuit breaker that were labeled "well." There was no sign of the wellhead, so I contacted the State Water Resources Board and received a map of all the water wells drilled in my section. There was no record of any well drilled on my property, so it must have been done off the books. Do you have any suggestions on how I could locate the wellhead? Thanks.
