Well, In my area the 1st thing we would do is to try and find out why the water was getting cloudy after a rain. We have ran a garden hose next to the casing and all around the well while we shine a light down the well to see if water is comeing in around the casing. Sometimes surface water will come in from a fault in the bedrock, or though sand and gravel, not much you can do in that case. I don't see how sand would keep surface water out of a well, Might clear it up some, But you would still have surface water getting in there. I would extend the casing above ground a foot and a half, Dig down two feet around the casing and pour bentonite around the casing. Bentonite is a dehydrated clay, They make 2 driffent kinds that I know about, One kind swells up when it comes in contac with water, That is the kind you want

Thank you very much for the info. I'll run a hose around it and see if I can see anything. I might just go get some bentonite. You said two feet deep, but how wide should I dig away from the well?

I am not sure whether it is a fault in the bed rock or a leak around the casing. The guy that drilled the well has a reputation for poor work (wish I would have known that then!), so I suspect that the casing was not seated properly, or deep enough.
