Records of Wells, Test Holes, and Springs

Information pertaining to 139 water wells, test holes, and springs in Johnson County is given in table 10. Much of the data was obtained from well owners, well users, and well drillers. The depth to water and the depth of the well were measured by the author when possible. The locations of the wells, test holes, and springs are shown on plate 1.
