1. Location number: Well numbers give the location of wells according to General Land Office surveys and according to the following formula: Township-Range-Section, 160-acre trace within that section, and the 40-acre tract within the quarter section. If two or more wells are located within a 40-acre tract, the wells are numbered serially according to the order in which they were inventoried. The 160-acre and 40-acre tracts are designated a, b, c, or d in a counterclockwise direction, beginning in the northeast quarter. For example: well 20-15-35bc is located in SW 1/4 NW 1/4 sec. 35, T. 20 S., R. 15 W.
2. Bored well; DD, dug and drilled well; Dn, driven well; Dr, drilled well; Du, dug well; Sp, spring.
3. Reported depths below the land surface are given in feet; measured depths are given in feet and tenths below measuring points.
4. Bs, Boiler steel; C, concrete; GI, galvanized sheet iron; GP, galvanized-iron pipe; I, iron; N, none; OB, oil barrels; OW, oil-well casing; R, rock; T, tile; W, wood.
5. Method of lift: B, bucket and rope; C, horizontal centrifugal; Cy, cylinder; F, natural flow; N, none; P, pitcher pump; S, submersible turbine; T, turbine; VC, vertical centrifugal. Type of power: B, butane; E, electric; G, gas engine; H, hand-operated; NG, natural gas; T, tractor; W, windmill
6. D, domestic; I, irrigation; In, industrial; N, not being used; O, observation; P, public supply; S, stock
7. Reported depths to water level are given in feet; measured depths to water level are given in feet, tenths, and hundredths
8. Water level in feet above measuring point.
