You could drill a shallow well but the water wouldn't be drinkable and might contain various pestasides (temic) and chemicals (trichlor) used widely in the area.
In most areas, there is a minimum depth for wells. When you reach that depth, first you concern yourself with the flow rate of the well (if not enough flow dig deeper). Then you concern yourself with the water quality (iron, hardness, salinity).

And here (Esquipulas, Oaxaca, Mexico) we dig wells by hand and lower the
concrete casings by hand. These are about 12 meters deep, so they are
very shallow but an extraordinary amount of work (minimum wage was just
"raised" to about 6US$ per day). They are underneath concrete shelters
(earthquakes) so if they must be deeper, in go the guys on ropes.
Uncontrolled growth causes the groundwater level to lower itself. No
