The depth and placement of a well depends, of course, on the area of the country where you live and the kind of ground found there. On average wells can be found at 100-500 feet. Few go significantly deeper than 700 feet. The decision on how deep to go is a judgement made by professional who is familar with that area.
It also depends on the type of well. Wells dug by drilling tend to be much deeper than hand-dug wells. The average drilled well is over 100 feet deep, but hand-dug wells tend to be only 10-30 feet deep. The problem with hand-dug wells is that the groundwater can be easily contaminated by seepage and often has to be boiled before it can be consumed.
