Description[edit | edit source]

Bore wells dig deep into the earth providing a stable source for water. They are not limited by soil restrictions and can be placed on any soil.

Looking suspiciously similar to an old oil drill (specifically a pumpjack), the bore well uses a reciprocating piston pump to mechanically drive up and extract groundwater from underground deposits located at much greater depths. In contrast to a water well, bore wells are not restricted to only fertile soil and can be built anywhere.
