6 inch case holds 1.5 gallons/foot for storage so it depends on your static level.
Around here anything over 5 gallons/minute is good but wells usually are deeper here and have a static level of 100 feet. So with 100 feet of storgae you have 150 gallons in the well before the water even really starts pouring in.

I have only 1/2 gallon/minute, but my well is 620, and my static level is at 180 feet down. The pump is at 600 feet of water in the well. 420x1.5=630 gallons of water in the well.

IMHO 70 foot well at 5 gallons is OK for a house, but I would not want to chance it on a farm with livestock...I would have gone another 100 feet just for the storage...
