4/23/14: Before this date, NAD27 locations were inadvertantly calculated for 2,795 wells. This resulted in a small offset, approximately 50 feet, between the location provided and the actual location. The affected wells have been identified and corrected. Please discard any shape files acquired prior to this date to ensure the most accurate location data available. Click to download an Excel file of the wells with revised locations .
