Records of Typical Wells and Springs
Descriptions of the wells and springs visited in Finney and Gray counties are given in tables 22 and 23. The wells and springs in each county are listed in order by townships from north to south and by ranges from east to west. Within a township the wells are listed in the order of the sections. All information classed as "reported" was obtained from the owner, tenant, or driller. Depths of wells not classed as "reported" are measured and given to the nearest tenth of a foot below the measuring point described in the tables, and depths to water level not classed as "reported" are measured and given to the nearest hundredth of a foot.
