In the Licking River Valley and in the valley of the main trunk of Hinkston Creek, most drilled wells will produce enough water for a domestic supply at depths of less than 100 feet. Wells located in many of the larger creek valleys will produce enough water for a domestic supply, except during dry weather. In upland areas (85 percent of the county), most drilled wells will not produce enough water for a dependable domestic supply unless they are drilled along drainage lines, in which case they may produce enough water except during dry weather. Throughout the county groundwater is hard or very hard, and may contain salt or hydrogen sulfide, especially at depths greater than 100 feet.
