Publication Abstract

A Water Well Inventory to Assess Potential Conflicts from Development of a Well Field in Selected Areas of McLean, Tazewell, and Woodford Counties, IL Wilson, Steve, Kevin Rennels, George Roadcap, 2013  Illinois State Water Survey, Champaign, IL,  ISWS CR 2013-03    Full Text Available

An inventory of existing private wells was conducted in a nine-township area in McLean, Tazewell, and Woodford Counties. In all, 1706 wells were identified, 788 of which had not been documented previously in the ISWS private well database. The goal of the project was to identify all existing wells and to collect water level and pump setting information for each well. A database of this information was developed and an evaluation of the potential for private wells to be affected by additional drawdown from possible future groundwater withdrawals was conducted. This potential was evaluated based on mapping the water depth above the pump and water depth above the well bottom to indicate the potential risk of well interference.
