    No way to answer this question. In my city, it can be thousands of dollars ($5,000ish) to hook up to city water even if everything is running right by your lot. You can inquire with local well drillers on estimates of how much it will cost to dig a well. Cost will vary by what type of well you need, what they have to dig through and how deep they have to go.

    You do not provide what city and state you are building in. Also, it would depend on if you are in the right area for a well. I would contact your local water company (or the one in the area you wish to build) and ask them.
