Hello Everyone :
Thanks for you input so far. To better explain what I'm thinking of doing,
I drew a picture and attached it to this post. I'm not thinking of just
burying it with dirt right up to the well pipe itself. I was going to
create an enclosure. Better just too look at the picture to see what I mean
Then let me know if you think it will work. I might have a well company
come out to tell me what they think as well. Thanks !!
Wrong reply: better to have offered the picture to
people who email for it. The trouble with graphics
in an all-text newsgroup is nowadays less the time
they take to load than the risk that some clever
dick will write an executable graphic tha plants
a virus in the reader's PC. Keeping text NGs to
text messages avoids this.

I have done that with an underground utility box and cover. Kept it
slightly above grade and poured concrete around it sloping up to the lip.
I have had no problems, but next time i will use a bigger box.

It will be interesting to see how you handle the situation after the propane
truck backs over it when the ground is soft. Happened here already with the
wellhead ABOVE ground (just bent the top of the pipe slightly) - so I'm
going to put a wishing well over the area and wish he'd stay off the grass
with his truck in the future. For now it's a PVC pipe stuck in the ground
about 6 feet high with a reflector on it.
