Do you know who could help me locate the power line for my well?

I called 811, but they didn't mark it.

Now I'm digging next to the house and keep finding ~2 ft long wires. I'm thinking they're either:
1. There to warn me that there's something important underneath, like the power line to my well pump, or
2. Scraps left over from when the house was wired, since they're all fairly close to the breaker box.

If anybody is able to help me rule out #1 as a possibility, or provide some insight as to what else they may be, it'd be much appreciated.

I've only dug out ~6 sq ft down to a depth of 6" or so, and have found many of these little wires...about 30 of them. They've obviously been there for a while...many are rusted through. Some still have either black or white coating on them. All of them are nearly identical in length.
