Well in Wedgwood
Posted 11 June 2017 - 05:06 PM
We have lived in out home in Wedgwood for almost 11 years, we bought the home from the original owners. Before purchasing the home we had an inspection and a survey. I don't have a copy of the survey on hand, we had a home disaster and many things were lost or packed up. I do think I would've taken note of a well on the property though.
I noticed what at first appeared to be a squared rock in the ground Wednesday, and upon closer examination realized that it was metal. After digging around we could see the pipe surrounded by a cement slab.
I am about 90% sure that it is a well.
I've checked historic aerials and saw on a topographic what appears to be a trail or road that ended approximately in our yard.
So, I turn to y'all now. How would I go about looking up old surveys to see if it's on there? I know that this area was ranch land up until the 60's; would this have been for cattle or could there have been a home here long ago?

PM me your street address and I can look into some survey resources.

Nevermind. I just looked at the entire area and see no sign of historic petroleum related wells - nothing besides the new gas wells and those wouldn't be in your yard. It'd have to be a waterwell or something else.

Take a look here www.tceq.texas.gov/gis/waterwellview.html
TCEQ maintains a lot of info for all types of wells.
