Thousands of artesian wells have been bored, the region between Los Angeles, Santa Clara and San Bernardino being one of the most important artesian well regions of the world.
The municipal water-works are supplied from a deep artesian well.
The water supply is obtained from a spring within the town limits, from which there flows about 576,000 gallons a day, and from an artesian well.
Besides the sterile and monotonous steppes, valuable only as pasture, and so sparsely populated that it is possible to travel for many hours without encountering any sign of human life except a primitive artesian well or a shepherd's hut, there are wide expanses of fen-country, regularly flooded in spring and autumn.
Water was also obtained from an artesian well at Cosford.
