    Another time to bring up Sand point wells. Any where you have what would be considered shallow wells it maybe an option. Those in places that have already outlawed private wells can put a Sand point in with anyone knowing. Just buy the pipes and points somewhere else.

    Honestly I find it fascinating that people in the USA put up with such nanny state legislation such as banning private wells and banning rainwater collection.
    Here in Texas we were nearly armtwisted into setting up rain water collection which we were going to do anyway as indicated in our plans, but you know how bureaucrats are, they have to do their prepared lecture etc.

    In Washington, the state has laid claim to rain water that falls on private property but for the most part, both the state and local governments encourage people to collect it.

    Here's a pretty good video of a guy using a Seymour augur to dig a shallow well. Our soil has a lot of rocks small rocks and we think this is a better option for us than just trying to drive in a well point.

    Yeah they even went as far here in Texas to specifically forbid counties and municipalities a building permit due to rainwater collection being included in the building plans. I like that kind of legislation to be honest, protects the people from meddling local authorities.
