Description:
An artesian Well is a deep well through which water is forced upward. The drill hits an aquifer, which is an underground water source. Rain water flows underground to this source.
Expanded Description:
The water in an artesian well flows from an aquifer, which is a layer of very porous rock or sediment, usually sandstone, capable of holding and transmitting large quantities of water. The geologic conditions necessary for an artesian well are an inclined aquifer sandwiched between impervious rock layers above and below that trap water in it. Water enters the exposed edge of the aquifer at a high elevation and percolates downward through interconnected pore spaces. The water held in these spaces is under pressure because of the weight of water in the portion of the aquifer above it. If a well is drilled from the land surface through the overlying impervious layer into the aquifer, this pressure will cause the water to rise in the well.
Water from an artesian well or spring is usually cold and free of organic contaminants, making it desirable for drinking.

Artesian Wells were named after the former province of Artois in France, where many artesian wells were drilled by Carthusian monks since 1126. The technique was also known much earlier in Syria and Egypt , although if the monks of Artois learned of it from outside sources, or discovered it independently, is unknown.

German:
Eine artesische Quelle bezieht sich auf den artesischen (das heißt gespannten) Zustand von Grundwasser, das infolge Überdrucks eigenständig oberflächennah ausfließt bzw. über das Gelände sprudelt. Zu einer solchen Erscheinung kommt es, wenn ein Grundwasserleiter (Aquifer) zwischen zwei undurchlässigen, muldenförmigen Schichten (Aquifugen) lagert und die Stelle des Grundwasseraustritts tiefer als der Grundwasserspiegel im Grundwasserleiter liegt.
