Records of Wells and Test Holes

Information pertaining to 231 water wells and test holes in Jefferson County is given in table 3. Much of the data was obtained from well owners and well users. The depth to water and the depth of the well were measured by the author when possible. The locations of the wells and test holes are shown on plate 1.
