clay cutoff wall


Explanation:
Замок - cutoff wall, cutoff. Стенка или какое-либо другое устройство предназначенное для уменьшения просачивания (фильтрации) воды вдоль другой какой-либо гладкой поверхности или через пористые слои грунта.

This refers to dams, rather than wells, but obviously the concept is the same.

Explanation:

Examples below can prove helpful to understand the meaning of the Russian “ginyaniy zamok” and “otmostka” (=more common Russian word for “podmostka”):

Для того чтобы через поверхностный слой в колодец не попадали загрязненные воды (верховодка, осадки, талые воды), необходимо вокруг колодца сделать т. н. глиняный замок — отрыть вокруг колодца котлован глубиной и шириной 1 м, заполнить его глиной, жирным суглинком или другим водонепроницаемым материалом. Вокруг колодца сооружают отмостку. Верхнюю часть колодца выводят над землей на высоту 0,7—1 м. Колодец необходимо закрыть крышкой.

колодца делают глиняный замок шириной 0,5 м и глубиной 1,0 - 1,5 м, поверх которого рекомендуется устроить сплошную железобетонную отмостку.

To put “glinyaniy zamok” in English, I would use either “clay crown” or “clay lining”:

For “otmostka”, I would prefer “sealing slab” or even "platform" (see some examples below):


Option 1. Cover the well with a reinforced concrete slab at least 4 inches thick and larger in diameter than the well borehole.
Option 2 Cover the well with a reinforced platform larger in diameter than the well borehole. The cover can be made with pressure treated lumber.
