Water Well Drilling Necessary in Rural Areas

While urban communities have treated water piped in to homes and businesses, rural residents or those living in small communities often have to experience water well drilling to ensure a safe and taste-free supply.

It’s relatively easy to find a good water well driller if you go online to find a reliable operation in your area, but first you need to find the source of clean, fresh groundwater. You will save hundreds of dollars if you have located the groundwater before the drilling rig arrives, and drillers get paid whether they find water or not, and the costs as they search in several different possible locations will rise until they are successful.

If you want to get fully informed on water well drilling go to www.wefindwater.com where American Water Surveyors is your source for answering all your questions. They have authored the book, What You Should Know Before You Drill a Water Well. It’s the only book available for individuals or companies that are considering drilling water well.

Groundwater comes from the rain, snow or hail that falls throughout the year in the North American climate. The water trickles down through the soil, gravel, and sand until it reaches a saturation point, the top of which is called a water table. It may be located many feet below the surface of the ground, or just beneath it. Usually it is clean and fresh but occasionally it may have become polluted. The only way to ensure it is safe for drinking is to get it tested by asking the professionals at AquaKnow what they recommend. You can reach them by calling 877-734-7661 extension 2, or check out their web site at www.aquaknow.com. At American Water Surveyors, we can determine groundwater depth and other important factors before the drilling begins.

Besides being a vital ingredient in successful day-to-day living for drinking, cooking, bathing, and watering gardens and crops, groundwater is an important component which engineers must consider when planning any kind of structure as the presence of groundwater may cause slope instability. For example, groundwater could cause weakness in a protective device such as a dam, which is built to prevent flooding.

When water well drilling, it is important to consider whether it is soft or hard. The amount of chemicals determines its quality, with too much calcium carbonate making the water very hard, leaving a scaly deposit on pipes and household implements and preventing soaps and shampoos from performing properly. Soft water is preferred but is not always available. Fortunately, water treatment systems can be added which the hard water runs through, greatly improving the quality and making it soft. Groundwater may have excessive amounts of iron, which is also removed by treatment when softening the water. The environmental effects of industrial plants, massive agricultural operations, leaking septic tanks, leaking oil or gas storage tanks, and municipal landfills can cause the quality of clean groundwater to deteriorate so it’s important to locate good clean water at a safe depth.

If you are considering water well drilling, you need to contact American Water Surveyors, whose portable equipment can come to any location. We have clients all over the United States, and they include farmers, ranchers and home owners, as well as golf course developers and municipalities.

Texas Well Drillers Can Help You Create a New Well

Has the quality of your well water diminished over time? When you get a brand new well, you expect cold, fresh, crisp water. For people who have older wells, however, it is not uncommon for water quality to be affected as components and pipes start to deteriorate. Some older wells even used components that contained lead that could seep into the water, creating a potential health hazard if it leeches into the water supply.

Test Water Quality Regularly

One thing that all well owners need to do is to take the time to test their water quality on a regular basis. Quality testing will check not only for lead, but other potential health hazards that are common with older wells and certain water sources. Knowing that your drinking water is safe should always be a priority, and proper and regular testing is a great way to do this. It is possible to purchase test kits for home use, but you will find that it may be better to allow a professional to test water quality for you. If lead or other potential toxins are found in your water, it is likely that you will need to have a new well drilled.

Why Texas Well Drillers Are Important

If your well is shown to have toxins or if your well simply is not working quite as effectively as it should, a new well can be the best solution. Finding a new water source and making use of newer and more modern components can help you create a longer lasting source of clean, potable water, and this means hiring a groundwater surveyor before you allow anyone to start drilling. Newer wells are not subject to the same levels of deterioration and are free of lead and other metals that may seep into drinking water over time. Choosing Texas well drillers and top groundwater surveyors to help you install a new well can be a great idea.

Drilling a new well can offer a number of benefits. In addition to safer water, you may be able to find a better overall water source. You will find that a quality team of Texas well drillers will utilize only the best surveyors and equipment to help you find the ideal sources of water on your property and will then help work with you to determine which water source will be the best match for you in terms of both convenience and cost.

Choose the Right Texas Well Drillers

When you are looking to hire groundwater surveyors and Texas well drillers, it is important to be certain that you are making the right choice. This means not only looking for well drillers that is licensed and insured, but choosing one with a great reputation for quality work and customer service. Cost is certainly a factor, but you needn’t overpay. Choosing based on price alone is never the right option, however, and you will be best served to research drillers in your area. When you find one that can do what it takes to find the best water source and to drill the well you need properly, you will know you have made the best choice.

Choosing Water Well Drilling Specialists

Whether you are looking to install water well on a new property or home site or to replace your existing well or municipal supply, choosing the right experts to perform the job is absolutely critical.  Drilling a well is a very costly and very time consuming process, and you need to have absolute confidence in the team that you choose to get the job done. Water well drilling requires the use of highly specialized equipment, and you need a team that not only knows how to use the equipment properly, but to keep it well maintained so that the job will go as quickly and as smoothly as possible.

It Starts With Groundwater Surveyors

Long before your water well drilling team sets to work, you should hire top quality groundwater surveyors.  You will find that any drilling team that is worthwhile will place great emphasis on finding the best water sources possible before they begin work, but in order to do this, you need to hire a surveyor that has the equipment needed to do the job.  Drilling a well only to come up dry will cost you thousands of dollars and can really damage the reputation of the driller as well, but it is up to you to find a quality surveyor.

You will find groundwater surveyors will be able to use specialized equipment to find the best water sources on your property.  This means finding sources that will offer a constant water supply during both wet and dry seasons, and it also means finding water sources that will be easily accessible to the drilling rigs.  Some geological features are harder to drill through than others, and your groundwater surveyor will be able to help you find the absolute best location for the placement of your well.

Drillers Matter Too

When choosing a water well drilling company, you certainly want to consider more than just their costs. What is the reputation of the company that you are choosing?  Do people recommend them?  Are their prices fair?  Do they offer great customer service and any type of guarantee?  Are they licensed and insured to do the job?  What about equipment, is it modern and well maintained so that you can be confident that the team will do the job properly and quickly?  All of these are things that you want to look into before hiring any company to drill a well on your property.

Taking the time to really look into a groundwater surveyor and a well drilling company before hiring them is always well advised.  Your water well should be in a location that will offer a long term supply of clean water and should be built with components that will provide decades of use.  You should be able to rely on your drillers to get the job done quickly and to get it done properly on the first time without overcharging you for their services.  By taking the time to look into groundwater surveyors and equipment as well as reputation, it is much easier to have confidence in the experts that you have chosen.

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).

Water Well Drillers

Technology today demands that water well drillers be fully qualified before they can be employed by drilling companies.
Part of the training water well drillers undergo is to learn the setting up, maintaining, repairing and operating of the drilling equipment; the designing of residential water supplies and heat pump systems; the locating, drilling, construction and developing of water wells; the installation and maintenance of water well equipment up to and including the well head; the testing of water wells to ensure an adequate water supply; the preparing of reports for consumers and government agencies; the redrilling, maintaining and sealing of existing wells. (List sourced from this website.)
Other training includes well construction history, well development, well abandonment, basic geology & groundwater, injection wells, drilling methods, aquifer storage, retrieval, well rehabilitation, and geothermal heating & cooling systems. Just by looking at these qualifications, those acquiring the services of water well drillers can have confidence that their well will be drilled in a professional and cost effective manner.
Devoted water well drillers call upon American Water Surveyors to map out and locate the best aquifer sites to drill. These highly trained water well drillers are meticulous in their work. They do not want to waste time drilling dry wells which cost them dearly in time and labor and they are also mindful of the costs to their customers.
American Water Surveyors employ the technology of the GF3500 seismoelectric survey instrument. It is designed specifically for detecting electrical signals generated by the passage of seismic impulses through layered rocks, sediments and soils. The signals detected arise directly from the movement of water, not from the rock matrix. Our equipment and a seismic source are used to estimate the depth and quality of aquifers. The seismic source is used to create a sharp sound pulse. When the sound pulse moves through porous and permeable aquifers, it travels fast in the rock matrix and slower in the water-filled pore space. Systematic surveys along traverses or in grids allow the lateral variability of aquifers to be mapped.
At American Water Surveyors you will find highly qualified professionals who are mindful of the costs to our customers, the water well drillers. We will perform the task of mapping your water source and the drillers will provide you with clean, safe drinking water. Call American Water Surveyors today at 1-877-SEISMO1 (734-7661) or 1-817-788-5716 or email us at info@wefindwater.com to let us help you in your water sourcing needs.

Oklahoma City’s Water

Residents in the city and suburbs of Oklahoma City should be pleased to know their water supply has been deemed adequate for the next 50 years. This is also good news for Oklahoma well drillers.
Oklahoma well drillers tap into water supplied by the North Canadian River and the Canton, Atoka, and McGee Creek Reservoirs.
The North Canadian River is of particular interest. This river, which is a tributary of the Canadian River, starts east of Des Moines in New Mexico and follows a winding 710 km trek through the United States. Of the 440 mile river length, seven of those miles flow through Oklahoma City. This seven mile stretch was renamed the Oklahoma River in 2004. Seven miles out of 440 may seem like a small portion, but for Oklahoma well drillers, seepage from those seven miles of river contribute to Oklahoma City’s underground water supply.
Having an accessible water supply such as the Oklahoma River is beneficial in many ways. The most obvious and convenient is a supply of water for drinking, cooking and bathing. Additionally, having a ready supply of water for farming is incredibly beneficial to the city’s economy. The ability to provide local water for farm animals and agriculture keeps overhead and consumer costs to a minimum.
Oklahoma well drillers are responsible for making water accessible to farmlands in and around the City. However, despite the rich supply of groundwater, drillers may still produce a dry well. Without the services and technology of companies such as American Water Surveyors, even the most respected well drilling companies do not have the ability to foresee underground water locations or estimate the depth and yield of the well.
Oklahoma City is fortunate to enjoy such an abundant water supply and Oklahoma well drillers will be tapping into it for years to come. Despite this seemingly endless supply of water, the best way to save money and to prevent drilling a dry well is to call American Water Surveyors to locate the source of your ground water, which will enable you to tell your well drillers precisely where you want them to drill. .

Water Well Drillers

Wells greatly vary in depth, water volume and water quality. Water well drillers must create an excavation or structure in the ground by digging, driving, boring, or drilling to access groundwater in underground aquifers. Once water is encountered, the drillers need to keep a close watch on the drilling process.
There are some safety concerns that water well drillers may encounter. They are exposed to high levels of noise while working. Another safety concern is electrical safety. Fatalities occur while water well drillers are drilling and/or servicing a water pump or when the rig contacts overhead power lines. Water well drillers need great skill to guide and control a water well drill as it penetrates sand, gravel, clay and solid rock formations deep underground.
Few people give any thought to how a deep vertical hole in sand or in solid rock must be constructed and how the drilled pieces of rock are removed from deep below the surface. It is amazing how drillers stop the hole from collapsing before the lining is put in. Compare it to drilling a root canal. Water well drillers must specially engineer and extract refuse from a comparatively small hole. Complications include a lack of light in the depths of the hole and the difficulty in removing the rock and soils while drilling. With this in mind, using American Water Surveyors before hiring water well drillers makes these circumstances less stressful.
Hiring water well drillers can be expensive. American Water Surveyors has a low cost non-intrusive aquifer quality mapping system. These maps form the basis for water abstraction policy, aggregate extraction, and/or well site planning at a small fraction of the cost of drilling. Drilling costs can be reduced by specifying where and how deep to drill. American Water Surveyors use the GF3500 which defines both the permeability and the depth of aquifers, making it possible to estimate the flow of a well. Be it dental or ground water, many people suffer from drilling anxiety! With the efficiency of American Water Surveyors, anxiety is relieved and thus choosing a water well driller becomes a satisfying experience. Contact 877-734-7661 www.wefindwater.com
