Not everyone has the luxury of having water readily available on their property. If this is the case, you will need the services of an experienced water surveying service. American Water Surveyors will help to locate water before the well drillers arrive. We understand that this is an important task and we always employ the most professional staff and use the best equipment for the job. If you need a well drilled for access to water, here is what you should choose American Water Surveyor

We Prevent Expensive Drilling

One major advantage of using the services of a water surveyor is to prevent the costs of installing a well from spiraling out of control. It can be extremely expensive to dig a well and you pay the driller even if he guesses where the water is and drills a dry well. We are able to find large water deposits using our advanced techniques. You will be able to rely on the aquifer we find for a long period of time and you won’t have to worry about having to drill for a new because the first one, or two, came up dry.

We Use Advanced Equipment

American Water Surveyors takes great pride in making sure we use the most modern, state-of-the-art equipment when we are searching for water sources. That’s why we take care in having the right computer software to make the process of finding water as efficient and reliable as possible.  We use a system that detects electrical events created from a small seismic source generated at the surface. Our software then takes the data from this receiver and analyzes it to predict the yield and depth of the aquifer.

We Test for Clean Water

Our company not only finds the water prior to drilling but we also make sure that it is safe and drinkable. Through our sister company, AquaKnow, you can analyze the water in your well or for the contaminates most likely to occur in your water source. This affordable service gets you a detailed report that you can use to help keep your family safe.

We Offer Professional Service 

It’s extremely important to us that we hire and fully train professional staff to work with our clients. We want everything that we do to be to a high standard. We partner with reliable, skilled technicians and scientists to ensure that the job is done properly and that our clients get the best water and service available. We guarantee that our work will be above reproach.

At a time when water sources are affected by the ongoing drought, it is vitally important to know where the water is before you drill, and to know the depth and yield of the flow. Contact American Water Surveyors. We have the best staff and equipment to find groundwater.

Where is the world’s oldest well?

A Well of History

According to some archeologists, the world’s oldest water wells are in Cyprus. These wells carbon-date back to nearly 10,500 years, and prove that wells are one of the oldest of human inventions.

While the wells in Cyprus are made of stone, other researchers have discovered extremely old wooden water wells in the Greater Leipzig region of Germany. These are thought to be the oldest timber constructions in the world. In fact, a team of experts estimate that the wells were built in the early Neolithic period between the years 5206 and 5098 B.C. Two wells from this period have also been discovered in Israel, specifically in Atlit (on the northern coast of Israel) and Jezreel Valley.

Survival and Solace

It’s a well-known fact that humans need water to survive. Not only is it one of our basic needs, but it’s one of the most primary of our basic needs; after all, a human being can live a lot longer when deprived of food than of water. It makes sense, then, that early humans would invest their time, labor and energy into constructing sustainable ways of drawing water from the earth.

The Aborigines of Australia, for example, relied on wells to survive the harsh conditions of the Australian desert. In fact, they designed methods of extracting and storing water that are now referred to as native wells, soaks, or soakages. Digging down into the ground, the Aborigines would scoop out sand and mud until they found clean water. Once found, the Aborigines would cover the water source with spinifex – various clump-forming perennial grasses found in Australia – to prevent the clean water from spoiling.

In other parts of the world, such as India, wells were used as a way to provide solace from the scorching daytime heat. These wells, known as step wells, were constructed so that water could be reached by descending a set of steps. It just goes to show that even in ancient times, wells were a source of survival and comfort!

Changing Technologies

While wells may be thousands and thousands of years old, the technologies used to drill or dig those wells have changed over the course of history. Until recent centuries, all wells were pumpless, hand-dug wells. While the technologies have changed – we know have driven and drilled wells – hand-dug wells continue to be a critical source of potable water to rural communities, especially in developing areas. Their history and indispensability to these communities is best attested in the ongoing historical and artistic references to hand-dug wells. For example, there are numerous stories of great historical and symbolic significance that occur in the Bible and other religious texts and major artworks.

If you need a well, you need to know where the water is before you call the well drillers. Since well drillers charge for their services no matter if they hit water or not, you could spend thousands of dollars on a dry well, so contact American Water Surveyors. We have technologically-advanced equipment and the experience you need to find the best place for the well diggers to drill.
