Summary: American Water Surveyors takes the guesswork out of drilling for water by determining the depth and yield of groundwater sources before you dig. Water well drillers get paid by foot, even if they don’t hit water. Protect yourself from digging a dry well by having a groundwater survey conducted on your property, before any digging commences.

What is your main concern when it comes to finding water? Do you know what it is you’re looking for, or is it once you find water that you think you’ve succeeded? Finding water is actually only half the battle when it comes to finding a reliable groundwater source. What many people don’t realize is the fact that depth and yield matter too.

Knowing Depth and Yield of Groundwater Sources

Have you ever drilled a dry well? Or maybe you’ve drilled a well that didn’t produce enough water to justify the cost? Knowing depth and yield before you even begin to drill a water well can actually save you hundreds (if not thousands) of dollars. The problem is, water well drillers get paid by the foot, whether they actually find water or not. The water finding services that we offer at American Water Surveyors cost far less than drilling test wells or dry wells, and also offers much more information than drilling a test well ever could. We are dedicated to being the premier service provider in the water finding industry. We use the world’s leading-edge technology to measure groundwater depths and yields. The transmissivity of water can be mapped from the surface, and yield can be estimated in gallons per minute or liters per second. Our seismic exploration techniques offer the only effective method for locating groundwater supplies in advance of drilling. Our exploration methods are based on physics and seismoelectrics, and are now the technique of choice for cost-conscious groundwater users.

Understanding Groundwater Depth and Yield

Water well drillers typically depend on antiquated or guesswork methods to determine where water may be found. Either that, or they will drill experimental wells – also known as exploratory test wells – which quickly drive up the cost for the consumer. All of these techniques are unreliable and can be ineffective, especially considering that not all water well companies have the same level of expertise. In contrast, American Water Surveyors uses a completely different approach. We use advanced seismoelectric survey instruments, which allow water well seekers to detect water, as well as the depth and its anticipated yield. Geology, water tables, and area water well logs are all considered into the activity.
