Tired of Drilling Dry Holes? Call a Water Finding Company Before you Drill

Summary: Drilling test wells in an attempt to locate groundwater can quickly become a costly enterprise, especially when you are constantly coming up with dry holes. If you are tired of wasting money on drilling, American Water Surveyors will help you find water before you begin to dig, saving you both time and money.

When you hire water well drillers to search for an appropriate location to dig for a well, drillers will get paid by the foot, whether they find water or not. As such, blindly drilling in search of water can quickly become an expensive task. Each dry hole that is discovered will cost you money, leading to more grief and frustration. If you are tired of paying for the dry holes being left behind by your water well drillers, American Water Surveyors can help you find water before you drill.

Finding Water Without Drilling Test Wells

If you have ever drilled a dry well, or a well that did not produce enough water to justify the cost, you know how time-consuming and expensive the process of finding water can be. Did you know that there is an alternative way of finding water before beginning to dig?

Have you just conjured up the image of someone with a Y-shaped twig or metal rods held in both hands, walking over the ground where the well water is likely to be found? No, we’re not talking about witchcraft here! American Water Surveyors uses the powers of science and technology to not only find water, but to calculate the depth and yield of the water source discovered. The transmissivity of water can be mapped from the surface, and yield can be estimated in gallons per minute or liters per second. Knowing these details before you dig can save you hundreds, if not thousands, of dollars by avoiding the unnecessary cost procured by dry wells.

The Technology Behind Finding Water

The GF3500 seismoelectric survey instrument can detect electrical signals generated by the passage of seismic impulses through layered rocks, sediments and soils. There are very high signal to noise ratios achieved with this instrument, meaning that productivities are high. Approximately 20 sites can be surveyed by an operator in a day’s work. The depth from which these signals originate are estimated to determine the depth of the groundwater source.

The quality of the water source can also be estimated by studying the relationship between signal bandwidth and amplitude, and aquifer permeability. The GF3500 seismoelectric survey instrument is used in conjunction with a seismic source, which creates a sharp sound pulse. This sound pulse moves through porous and permeable aquifers. The signals gathered using this technology offer further information concerning the depth, thickness and quality of the aquifer, which is used to estimate the likely water yield from a borehole drilled at the survey site.
