A player near a well.
A well is a man-made structure tunneling down an aquifer for water extracting purposes.

Currently, Wells can only be found outside of the main map cell. There are currently two known wells. The first is located at the Farm to the Northwest of the city (see below). The second well is near the cabin in the woods, NW of the lumber yard.

Post RC 2.9 Location

The 2.9 map has multiple wells. One well which was very close to the city was removed during balancing, shortly after the 2.9 map was released. A second well can be found on a farm Northwest of the city. This well is found by following "Old Salt River Road."

The player can reach the well from the gas station in central Muldraugh. This gas station is at the intersection of the Dixie Highway (also called "The Highway") and "Old Mill Road."

  • Leave Muldraugh on Old Mill Road. This road heads "West" in the real world (In the game "West" is towards the upper left corner of the screen.)
  • Take the 1st left onto Carpenter Test Road. This is a very short walk, it should take less than 30 seconds for an average player to walk. Carpenter Test Road has a double yellow center-line, and no sidewalks.
  • Take the 1st right onto Old Salt River Road. This is a similarly short walk. The "T-junction" intersection is an uncontrolled intersection and Old Salt River Road has no markings as of RC2.9 Build 0008B.
  • Continue on Old Salt River Road for a very long time. As you travel there are three landmarks you will pass. First, you will pass a clear-cut strip which curves around Muldraugh's West and North. Second, the road will turn to the right. Third, the road will turn to the left.
  • Turn left onto the driveway. You have arrived.
    Old Salt River Road meets the driveway to the farm house. (click for a bigger version)
    The driveway joins a "T-junction". The winding driveway leads to the farm. The well is just north-west (top center of the screen) of the main house.

Pre-0.2.0r RC2.9 Location

Following the path along the Northern Highway in the pre-alpha, survivors can find a well just northwest of the farmhouse. Wells can apparently be found in various other map cells.

Uses

After some time, the city's water supply will run out. When the faucets found throughout Knox County no longer work, a survivor must rely on either wells, or whatever beverage the survivor has stockpiled.

Wells are the only infinite source of water currently in the game. Other sources, such as a Rain Collector Barrel are refillable when rain falls, but store only a finite amount of water
