All You Ever Need To Build A DIY Hand Dug Well
I think I am right in saying if you do not have a means to get or purify water in a survival or SHTF situation your chances are very bleak and death would be very near at all times.
If you own your own land you can always dig a well. This is a lot of work and in some states you have to have a permit to even dig a well. Saying you have a permit or you do not need one, digging a well is relatively straight forward. There are a couple of ways to make a well.
The first is to drill a well with big expensive equipment. The second is to dig a well, the old fashioned way. In olden times, wells were dug with a pick and shovel, with a lot of backbreaking work. Depending upon the location, the well might have to be dug quite deep to provide enough water. That much backbreaking work wasn’t something that anyone would want to do, even though it was a necessity.
