In the eastern half of Wayne County, most of the wells drilled in the valley bottoms are adequate for a domestic supply, but less than half the wells drilled on hillsides and hilltops are adequate for domestic needs. In the western half of the county, about three-quarters of the drilled wells in the uplands yield enough water for domestic use. In low-lying areas, very few wells yield enough water for a domestic supply, except for some wells close to Lake Cumberland, especially those that penetrate solution openings in the limestone bedrock.
