The static water level is the distance from the top of ground level to the top of the water level in your well.
Static water level is important because it determines whether or not you need a shallow well pump or a deep well pump. The actual pumping depth is from the static water level, not the overall depth of the well. If you have a 300′ deep well and a static water level of 20′, you are actually pumping from a 20′, not 300′. In order to determine whether you need a deep or a shallow well hand pump, base your decision on the static water level.
