New Mexico Well Drillers

The Office of the State Engineer in New Mexico has defined a well as a bore hole, cased or screened bore hole, or other hydraulic structure that is drilled, driven, or dug with the intent of penetrating a saturated geologic unit. New Mexico well drillers have strict codes of state compliance to adhere to and need a valid state license before any water well drilling is allowed.
Having a valid drilling permit is vitally important since it validates New Mexico well drillers as reputable companies able to conduct business in the state.
“Any person desiring to engage in the drilling of one or more wells for underground water within the boundaries of any underground source shall file an application with the state engineer for a driller license. It is unlawful for any person, firm, or corporation to drill or to begin the drilling of a well for water from an underground source without a valid, existing license for the drilling of such wells issued by the State Engineer of New Mexico” source: http://www.ose.state.nm.us/water_info_rights_drillers.html
New Mexico well drillers not adhering to the stringent rules of drilling may be issued a written reprimand, a compliance order or, after a notice and hearing have their license suspended or revoked. These are serious matters. Even a seemingly simple issue of the licensed well driller or his registered drill rig supervisor not being present at the drilling site during well drilling activities violates the license agreement.
Coupled with the complicated issues of drought and water rights issues, including native water rights settlements, New Mexico well drillers really need to do their homework to avoid costly drilling mistakes. American Water Surveyors are knowledgeable professionals, cognizant of the legal ramifications of any drilling that violates the State’s water rights legislations. We have conducted surveys in Texas, Oklahoma, New Mexico, Kansas, Georgia, Alabama, Tennessee and North Carolina. Our experienced personnel provide the important service of finding groundwater depth, yields, and suitability within the parameters of the legalities of the water rights of the individual states.

Water Well Drillers

When selling or buying a property, having a properly documented water well report can make all the difference in the world in determining if the sale will be completed. Water well drillers’ logs are extremely important documents to look over before signing on the dotted line.
Water well drillers have a responsibility to make sure the well is drilled within the property confines and to keep an accurate record of all drilling activities. Colleen, from Real Estate & Water Wells, gives some good advice as to what to look for in water wells logs on her website: Real Estate With Water Well Advice. Colleen notes that Water Well Logs are water well construction reports. Basically, the well log should describe the location of the well, original property owners name, construction details and lithology of the completed well.
Colleen says that documentation should be noted of the finished depth of the well, whether the well was constructed with a well screen, the total number of feet of steel casing that was used, and a clear description of the different materials that were drilled through from the beginning to completion.
Other pertinent information on the water well drillers’ log is the date that the well was drilled, the property address, legal description, perhaps a tag number, water well drillers’ company name, the individual(s) driller’s name and the names of the driller(s) assistant(s) where necessary.
Colleen advises that vendors need to be able to provide a water well log before the property is listed, and if a report is not easily obtainable, calling local water well drilling companies might be helpful since most local water well drillers keep excellent records and provide good customer service in matters such as these.
Colleen cites several instances where the information on the logs was the determining factor as to whether the sale was completed or not. For instance, if the logs noted that several dry wells were dug and abandoned, that indicates that there may not be any good underground sources of water on that particular property. Every dry well has to be reported; therefore, it is in the best interest of the property owners not to have dry wells registered against the property.
The state of the art technology of seismoelectrics is the science used by American Water Surveyors to map out the best ground water supplies for the intended use. Our applications assist ranchers/farmers, municipalities, homeowners, real estate developers, golf course developers, water well drillers and any other entity requiring well locating or completion planning. Transmissivity (the rate which groundwater flows horizontally through an aquifer) can be mapped from the surface, and yield can be estimated in gallons per minute or liters per second before hiring the water well driller. Call or email American Water Surveyors today to find out more about our services or to request a quote. Contact us at http://www.wefindwater.com or call us at 1-877-SEISMO1 (734-7661).
