Records of Typical Wells

Descriptions of the wells visited in Thomas County are given in the table that follows (table 9). 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. All information classed as "reported" was obtained from the owner or tenant. Depths of wells not classed as "reported" were measured and are given to the nearest tenth of a foot below the measuring point described in the table. Depths to water level not classed as "reported" were measured and are given to the nearest hundredth of a foot.
