    I had a new well drilled 9 days ago. The well was drilled 445 ft deep, hit rock at 50 ft and casing was installled, and an estimated flow of 7 gpm. The top of the well casing was covered with tape until I could get a pump installed. Air was blowing out around the tape and has continue to blow air for days. I was checking to see how deep the water is and I hit water at 80 ft and then mud or slug at 84 ft.

    Has the well filled up or is this an obstruction that has sealed it off? What do I do?
