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 tract 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 18-6-1cd is located in the SE SW sec. 1, T. 18 S., R. 6 E.
2. DD, dug and drilled 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. Br, brick; C, concrete; GI, galvanized sheet iron; I, iron; N, none; OW, oil-well casing; R, rock; T, tile.
5. Method of lift: Cy, cylinder; F, natural flow; N, none; P, pitcher pump; T, turbine. Type of power: E, electric; G, gas engine; H, hand operated; N, none; W, windmill.
6. D, domestic; I, irrigation; N, not being used; S, stock; P, public supply.
7. Measured depths to water level are given in feet, tenths, and hundredths; reported depths to water level are given in feet. All depths are below measuring point.
