Driven Wells

Driven wells are built by pushing a small-diameter pipe into shallow sand or gravel that carries water. Normally before moving, a well screened dot is added to the bottom of the casing. These wells are relatively simple and cost-effective to install but they can only tap shallow water and are easily polluted from nearby surface sources because they are not sealed with grouting material. Hand-driven wells are typically only about 30 feet deep; machine-driven wells may or may not be 50 feet deep.‚Äč
