Records of Wells, Test Holes, and Springs

Information pertaining to 436 water wells, test holes, and springs in Douglas County is given in Table 8. Measured depths to water are given to the nearest 0.01 foot, whereas depths reported by the owner, tenant, or driller are given only to the nearest foot. Similarly, measured depths of wells are given to the nearest 0.1 foot, whereas reported depths are given only to the nearest foot. This table has been split over several pages.
