Faqs / Q: Will my well free flow like a spring out of the ground?


A: It depends. Wells that are drilled into a confined aquifer access water that is under pressure.  This pressure forces the water in the well to rise. The water may flow out at the surface, but not always. It depends on the well location and its surface elevation. If the well naturally free flows above land surface, it then meets the definition of an artesian well.
