  Artesian aquifer - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
An artesian aquifer is a confined aquifer containing groundwater that will flow upwards out of a well without the need for pumping.
In recharging aquifers, this happens because the water table at its recharge zone is at a higher elevation than the head of the well.
Artesian wells were named after the former province of Artois in France, where many artesian wells were drilled by Carthusian monks since 1126 (see also

 KGS--Meade County--Artesian Water
The piezometric surface, or pressure-indicating surface, of an artesian aquifer is an imaginary surface that everywhere coincides with the static level, or head, of the water in the aquifer.
Precipitation that falls in the discharge area of an artesian basin has no effect upon the ground-water level, or pressure head, for in such areas the artesian water is effectively sealed from the surface by impervious beds or else the artesian pressure could not be maintained.
As the total annual discharge of artesian water is estimated to be 10,000 acre-feet, and if the recharge is assumed to be equal to the discharge, this indicates that an average recharge of about 0.27 inches may reach the water table in the areas described.

 Jade Spring Artesian Water
According to the EPA, water from artesian aquifers often is more pure because the confining layers of rock and clay impede the movement of contamination.
Artesian well water comes from a well that taps an aquifer--layers of porous rock, sand and earth that contain water--which is under pressure from surrounding upper layers of rock or clay.
When tapped, the pressure in the aquifer, commonly called artesian pressure, pushes the water above the level of the aquifer, sometimes to the surface.

 Abandoned Artesian Well Plugging Program - Environmental Services - Seminole County Government - Florida
An artesian well is a well that has been drilled into a rock formation that contains water confined under pressure (an artesian aquifer).
Some artesian wells, however, have been "abandoned." Basically an abandoned artesian well is one that has no flow control on it or the well casing is deteriorated and water is flowing or seeping onto or under the ground.
Presently, activity in the Abandoned Artesian Well Plugging Program is diminishing, mainly for two reasons: increased awareness of water conservation and development of much of the agricultural land in Seminole County.
