Summary: The deepest drilled hole on Earth might have water in it, but it doesn’t require drilling anywhere near that deep to dig your own well. American Water Surveyors can assist homeowners in knowing exactly where to dig to produce the best results.

When it comes to drilling wells, the deeper the better, right? Generally speaking, the deeper you drill, the more stable your water supply will be. Is there such a thing as drilling too deep? Russia doesn’t think so!

The Deepest Drilled Hole on Earth

In 1970, scientists in Murmansk, Russia began to drill the Kola Superdeep Borehole, in order to learn more about the Earth’s crust. It took a whopping 24 years of digging for them to get to 7.5 miles (or 12,262 meters) deep. One of the things that scientists learned in doing this was that there is lots of water deep inside the Earth. This groundwater may be the result of stray oxygen and hydrogen atoms being pressed from rock minerals. So, if you dig deep enough down into the Earth’s crust, you’ll certainly find water, but no one realistically wants to drill straight down into the center of the Earth to find water. That’s where American Water Surveyors comes in!
