(1) Location number: Well numbers give the location of wells according to General Land Office surveys and according to the following formula: township-range-section, 160-acre tract within that section, and the 40-acre tract within the quarter section. If two or more wells are located within a 40-acre tract, the wells are numbered serially according to the order in which they were inventoried. The 160-acre and 40-acre tracts are designated a, b, c, or d in a counterclockwise direction beginning in the northeast quarter. For example, well 18-6-1cd is located in SE SW sec. 1, T. 18 S., R. 6 E.
(2) DD, Dug and drilled well; Dr, drilled well; Du, dug well.
(3) Reported depths below the land surface are given in feet; measured depths are given in feet and tenths below measuring points.
(4) C. concrete; GI galvanized sheet iron; I, iron; N, none; R, rock; T, tile.
(5) Method of lift: Cy, cylinder; N, none; T, turbine; J. jet; C, centrifugal; B, bucket and rope. Type of power: E, electric; G, gas engine; H, hand operated; N, none; W, windmill.
(6) D, domestic; N, not being used; S, stock; P, public supply.
(7) Measured depths to water level are given in feet, tenths, and hundredths; reported depths to water level are given in feet. All depths are below measureing point.
