Records of Typical Wells

On the following pages are tabulated the information obtained in regard to water wells in Ford County (table 15). The numbers in the first column correspond to the well numbers on the maps (plates 2 and 3) and in the table of analyses (table 14). The wells 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. Depths of wells and water levels that were reported rather than measured are given only to the nearest foot. Depths of wells not classed as "reported" are given to the nearest 0.1 foot below the measuring point described in the table, and measured water levels are given to the nearest 0.01 foot. Records are included of a few wells in adjoining counties.
