Default Cost of Drilling Water Well

A realtor told me that it cost anywhere from 25,000-50,000 to drill a well in Blount County. Is this true?

Yikes! It might be up there (I have no idea).

The ones I've seen drilled in Middle Tennessee basically involved three men and a truck for three to five days.

I drilled a well and put in a septic tank in eastern tenn. The price of well depends how deep they have to go. My well was dug 260 feet and it cost me 4400 dollars. My septic tank cost me 3500 dollars, if that helps.

That's more in line with what I would have guessed. If someone had asked me (and I don't really know anything about it), I would have said somewhere between $5000 and $10,000.

That's not bad for a well or septic. I understand if you hit rock while digging a well the price can skyrocket fast but was there anything that might cause an increase in putting a septic in at all?

We have heard about $10,000.00 for well and tank. We were told $4,000. - $ 7,000. for well and about $3,000. - $4,000. for the tank. That's in our county McMinn. Each area is different. But 25,000-50,000 sounds a little steap.
