Summary: Finding groundwater sources does not have to be a costly and time-consuming process. By harnessing the power of physics, American Water Surveyors can conduct a groundwater survey on your property, before you call the well drillers. By doing so, you can avoid paying for dry wells, and will know the approximate depth and yield of your new private well.
If you live outside of the city, chances are you rely on aquifers, or groundwater, to access fresh, clean water. Before you consider calling water well drillers, it is a good idea to conduct a groundwater survey first. Not only will this save you time, but conducting a groundwater survey can save you a considerable amount of money. Water well drillers get paid by the foot, whether they find water or not. At American Water Surveyors, our water finding services cost far less than repeatedly drilling test wells.
How to Find Water Without Drilling
When you consider finding water without drilling test wells, what comes to mind? Are you picturing someone wandering around your property, holding a Y-shaped twig or a pair of metal rods? Water witching is probably the only form of magic still believed in by a large proportion of today’s adult population in the West. A “water witch” is simply a magician, claiming to have the divine powers of determining where to drill at a particular location. Skeptics have largely discounted non-scientific methods of finding water, as today’s highly technological practices produce much more reliable and credible results. At American Water Surveyors, we believe the only effective method for locating groundwater supplies in advance of the drilling is based upon physics, not magic. The science behind seismoelectrics allows us to find groundwater, without magic and without drilling holes all across your land.
Understanding Seismoelectrics Technology
Seismoelectrics allows American Water Surveyors to locate groundwater, without drilling costly test wells. This method of locating fresh, clean water is much more dependable than any technique that came before, and also does more than simply locating water sources. The GF3500 seismoelectric survey instrument detects electrical signals generated by the passage of seismic impulses through layered rocks, sediments and soils. The depths from which these signals originated can also be estimated with this technology. When the GF3500 seismoelectric survey instrument is used in conjunction with a seismic source, our teams can determine the quality of seismoelectric data by studying such factors as power line noise field strength, source coupling and receiver coupling. All of our equipment is portable, allowing us to travel across the country for our clients. Geology, water tables and area water well logs are all considered during the groundwater survey. What does all of this mean? By conducting a groundwater survey, you will do much more than simply locate the groundwater sources on your property. Utilizing seismoelectrics technology, we will map the transmissivity of water from the surface and estimate its yield in gallons per minute or liters per second.
