The water in an Artesian Well uses pipes to allow underground water to rise to the surface without a pump (due to the pressure between rock layers). Because the water in an Artesian Well passes through porous rock as it travels to the underground water source, it is naturally filtered.
Flowing Artesian Well
The British Columbia Groundwater Association defines a Flowing Artesian Well as a well where water rises above the ground and flows intermittently or continuously. An artesian flow is considered to be controlled when:
- The flow is conveyed through the production casing.
- The flow does not pose a risk to property, environmental damage or public safety.
- The flow can be indefinitely stopped without leakage.
