We found a old well on our property (We moved here about a year ago and are camping on the property) The previous owners did not know anything about it so it was here before them. We tried to pump it empty so we could clean it but after running the pump for 15 min at about 9 gallons a min it did not make a dent in the water level. Actually you could not tell we did anything. The water is SOOO cold and the ground nearby has water bubbling up from the ground (not from the well but from the ground. SO how do I clean it out, Hook it up and pipe it over to where I am building our house. (so far I have cleared trees) I am afraid if I report it they might make me seal it off.
