I’m not sure I know what a naturally occurring well would be in English. The English word “well” implies an artificial structure to me. Maybe a natural spring is what you’re thinking about? Maybe something like {bIQ Hal} or {bIQ QemjIq} would work for that, though obviously it would need the right context for it to be clear that this refers to a spring.
