    We just purchased this land and need to know if these are springs. They showed up after heavy rain, and are holding water longer than the root wad holes which have dried out. They did have greener vegetation than every place else, and I believe they have willow trees growing out of two of them.
    How can we test to find out, or see what kind of volume is in them. Any help would be great, thank you in advance, Tony

    They could be. Pump them out and see if they refill themselves. See how many gallons they produce per hour and that'll give you an idea of how productive they are. Even if they are springs they may not run all-year-long.

    The next step would be to develop them. Basically that means you need a reservior of some kind and pump to get the water from there to wherever you need it.

    Look like wet weather springs we had on our property in Missiouri. Hope they are good working ones for you. Be careful because the source can dissapper if you dig around it.
    Maybe place some stones around to protect it.
