Description:
Abstract:
WATERWELLS_IDNR_IN.SHP shows the locations of 413,317 water wells in Indiana that are registerd by the Indiana Department of Natural Resources, Division of Water, as of December 14, 2017 (data were provided on January 22, 2019). Attributes include identification numbers, URL links to water reports for each well, and information about well capacity if measured.

The following is excerpted from the metadata provided by IDNR for the source shapefile WATERWELLS_DNR_WATER_IN_171214.SHP:

"This file is a digital geospatial point feature class of both located water well records (which include UTM coordinates) and unlocated water well records (without UTM coordinates as of 12/14/17). The estimated locations used for the unlocated wells were based on the polygon centroid values for the smallest indicated county, section, quarter, quarter-quarter, or quarter-quarter-quarter section (as indicated in the database) for over 207,000 water well records and for about 58,600 water well records the UTM's were obtained from address geocoding using the owners address or driving directions, a generally more accurate method (see process steps below). The LOC_TYPE field describes the method of each record's method of location."

Purpose:
The following is excerpted from the metadata provided by IDNR for the source shapefile WATERWELLS_DNR_WATER_IN_171214.SHP:

"The Division of Water Ground Water Database has approximately 413,000 water well records, and of those, approximately 147,000 have been field located and have x, y (UTM) coordinates. Approximately 58,600 were located based on address or office geocoding. The remaining records have no utms and their locations are approximated to the centroid of the most precise known area based on the record: PLSS quarter-section, PLSS section, or county. This dataset includes selected fields from the main digital water well database that are typically needed for most research. Updated 12/14/17."

Horizontal_Positional_Accuracy_Report:
The following is excerpted from the metadata provided by IDNR for the source shapefile WATERWELLS_DNR_WATER_IN_171214.SHP:

"Locations based only on the street address, driving directions, or other location information provided on the well record are considered unlocated records and have no x, y coordinates, only township, range, section, and quarter-quarter-quarter sections (if estimated).

"The x, y coordinates are from the calculated centroid of the smallest possible individual polygon that matched the water well location data. Some records have no quarter sections and/or some of the polygons could not be subdivided, so the centroid of the section was used for those water well records. These are the least accurate coordinates and in a regular one-mile square section the x, y coordinates will generally be within a half-mile of the office located section, on irregular sections, the distance may be greater. The best location values are on the records with quarter-quarter-quarter sections and typically will be within 150 meters of the office located quarters.

"A small number of the data points were checked for accuracy and methods used should keep the x, y coordinates within the proper section in most cases. However, due to the complexity and in cases redundancy in the public land survey system for Indiana some x, y pairs may not be located in the proper section or even the proper county. Other sources of error may be caused by misinterpretation of the driving directions or office locating. Several areas have different survey systems than the Congressional TRS (Clark Military Grant, Military Donations, Meridian Road Lines, Indian Treaties etc.) and no attempt at this time was made to provide centroids for these areas.

"Located records were primarily field located based on the location identified on the USGS 1:24,000 7.5 minute series topo map by the field locator. In some cases the structure or subdivsion may not be on the map and location is based on topography. So some error may be inherent in the field locations and points placed on the map ( a single point on a map may be 100 feet across). The scale is based USGS 1:24,000 7.5 minute series topographic maps. However, in most cases locations of mislocated wells can have large errors, with the reported locations having no meaning."

Process_Description:
Polygon shapefiles representing divisions in the Indiana PLSS were spatially joined to LANDSURVEY_COUNTY_POLY_IN.shp using a one-to-many relationship, so sections and subsections on county boundaries could be identified. A new field was added to poly_q.shp, poly_qq.shp, poly_qqq.shp, and Landsurvey_Sections_Poly_IN.shp called "CONCAT," which concatenated the following fields of the attribute tables: TWP,TWPD,RNG,RNGD,PARCEL_ID,QTR,COUNTY. Each layer was then converted to points (polygon centroid locations). A check for duplicates in the CONCAT field was conducted to verify the uniqueness of this field for matching against the water well log database. Several errors were found in LANDSURVEY_COUNTY_POLY_IN.shp and were corrected before proceeding. Using the Calculate Geometry tool in ArcGIS, UTMX and UTMY values were calculated for each point in each section and subsection data layer.

Process_Description:
The DNR.DBF table obtained from IDNR was imported into a Microsoft Access database called IDNR_waterwells.mdb for processing. A query was conducted to identify records with IDNR locations (UTM coordinates) and those without. A subset of the original fields were retained, including: REFNO, COMPDATE, OWNER, COUNTY, TWN, RNG, QUAR1, QUAR2, QUAR3, SEC, DEPTH, STATIC, PUMPRATE, BAILERRT, WELLUSE, UTMX, UTMY. DBF attribute tables of the section and subsection point files were imported to the Access database from the input shapefiles. A field called CONCAT was added to the unlocated well-log table to concatenate the fields: TWN, RNG, QUAR1, QUAR2, QUAR3, SEC, COUNTY. Relationships were defined in Access using the CONCAT field for the unlocated records and the section and subsection point locations. Queries were conducted for each subsection to assign UTM (NAD 27) coordinates to each unlocated well record based on the best available PLSS location. A field was added to each output query table called "LOC_SRC" and populated with the value "PLSS AND COUNTY MATCH" for each record matched with an estimated coordinate. A field was added to the query table for the located records called "LOC_SRC" and populated with the value "IDNR-WATER" to denote that the locations were sourced from IDNR.

Process_Step:
Process_Description:
A table called ilith.dbf was imported into the Access database (IDNR_waterwells.mdb), and a query was performed to identify records in the original IDNR database with locations corrected during the compilation of the iLITH database. Eight hundred and eighty (880) UTM coordinates in the LOCATED table were replaced with iLITH locations and the LOC_SRC field for these records was populated with the value "ILITH." All water-well records with estimated coordinates were appended into a single table called "matched." This table was then appended to the LOCATED table to produce a single table with located and unlocated well records. In ArcGIS, the Add XY data utility was used to import the water-well locations (located and estimated). The data were exported to a shapefile with an assigned projection of UTM NAD27 Zone 16, which is the native projection of all the IDNR and original iLITH locations. The shapefile was then reprojected to UTM NAD83 Zone 16, and two new fields were added to the shapefile attribute table: UTMX83 and UTMY83. The Calculate Geometry utility was used to calculate the new UTMX and UTMY coordinates for the new UTM 1983 datum. The UTM NAD27 coordinate fields were deleted from the shapefile. The shapefile was clipped to the state boundary to retain only records contained within the boundary. The resulting shapefile was named Waterwells_IDNR_IN.shp
