    First of all, you need to know how deep your groundwater is located.  If you don’t want to call in the professionals, which can be expensive, you can determine where you should place your well, as well as dig it, all by yourself.  You also should contact your county regarding regulations and permits first.  They should be able to tell you if your land is suitable for your own well.  Certain plants grow where the water table is the highest.  White oak and hornbeam trees are good indicators.  The link below in the citation.  provides further advice regarding digging your own water well.
