What Does Bored Well Mean?
A bored well is a well that's bored rather than drilled. It's smaller in diameter than a drilled well. It's designed to take advantage of low-yield, shallow aquifers and remain bacteriologically safe through the use of a combination of casings, collars, concrete slabs, sand, location and detailed specifications.
Depths of bored wells range from 30 to 80-feet and the specifications regarding the depth of the collar or casing, concrete slabs or covers, and proximity to potential sources of pollution may vary according to locale.
