Already have a well, and want to find out more about it or check the history of wells drilled
Well reports and profiles are known in the business as well logs. Use the Oregon
Department of Water Resources Well Log Search Engine.
"WATER WELL REPORTS
Another useful tool for learning about your local ground water is the water well report, often
called a "well log." Well logs are prepared by the well driller as required by Oregon water
law. Well logs provide information on geologic formations encountered in a well and list
details concerning well design, construction, and yields. They are a basic tool used in
checking for ground water availability.
The Water Resources Department has well logs for most of the water wells drilled in Oregon
since 1955. However, the likelihood of finding records for wells drilled after 1970 is much
higher than for older wells. Well logs are available on the Department's Internet website.
From the home page, select "Access Well Logs" or "GRID-Web." There are numerous
ways to query the information. One of the most useful ways is to search under Township,
Range, and Section. The data for all of the wells in the section(s) will be displayed onscreen.
For effective searches, use a unique identifier, such as the original owner's name, tax lot
information, street address, or age of well. You may view an image of the well log if you
have a TIFF viewer on your computer, typically provided with systems like Microsoft
Windows 95 and 98."
