Well, for the benefit of all the other posters, maybe I answer.

Anything over 14000 gal/minute, and you need a 100,000 lbs pressure-mitigation system, mounted on a 150ft tall tower. Also, don't stand in front of the tap when you turn it on.

Hope that helps!

My son and DIL bought a house that's on a community well water. Once in a great while they say water pressure will drop a little bit. They are considering having their own well drilled in their yard and getting off his.

My last rural home was on a counity water system. Later bought out by a large company that invested in new tanks and updated service connections. Never a major problem but occasionally low pressure in summer when everyone watered their yard or garden at the same time. With the updated system that stopped being an issue.
I currently live where I have myown wells. Ok. But every problem is my responsability.

This would be my concern. I spoke to a realtor in western NC who for this reason suggested no shared well.

Why would a land owner dividing his land into 15 to 50 lots consider a community well over each lot providing for its own individual well? Is it because he can divi up his land into more “creatable” lots? Like each lot of 1/2 acre vs 1 acre?

Exactly. I once reviewed subdivision plans in a jurisdiction that required minimum lot size of 5 acres to avoid creating a common water system (anywhere in USA 15+ residential connections is a federally regulated public water supply). In that area at that time land was cheap enough that subdivisions of 5 acre lots were not uncommon. Usually there would be a row of lots along a road going way back up or down a steep slope, locking up what might be productive forest in a bunch of uneconomic parcels.
