Building a well is a huge commitment of labor and resources. When your well is in a good place over a clean aquifer, the cost and time are well worth it, but if your well doesn’t work, or if it goes dry after a short while, then you’re left with lost money and a well you can’t use. Nobody wants that, which is where American Water Surveyors comes in. Recently, Tony St James interviewed our company’s owner, Gerald Burden, about the process of surveying the potential sites of water wells. Here are a few of the highlights of that interview, along with some insights from the company.

A Well-Established Company

American Water Surveyors has been in business for nearly a decade. We owe our success to our expertise and dedication to helping our customers find high quality aquifers so that they can build reliable, long-lasting water wells for their property. With our state-of-the-art equipment we are able to estimate the depth and yield potential of a well long before the project of building it has begun. We have surveyed in 21 states and are reaching the mark of 600 properties surveyed, which makes us a well-established company, no pun intended!

Saving You Time and Money

We take each surveying assignment very seriously, taking the time to individually research each request before even traveling to the location of the potential well. This allows us to save customers time and money by weeding out unsuitable locations before we commit to surveying the land. Our seismic detection equipment can help to narrow down the best place to drill your well, completely eliminating the costly process of trial and error. It may seem like witchcraft, but it’s all due to reliable technology, hard work and dedication. No black magic required, although we admit that dowsing rods would be quite convenient if they actually worked!

The Importance Of Professional Surveying

Beyond the steep cost of building and maintaining a water well, there are other reasons to hire American Water Surveyors to survey your land before you start drilling. Not all aquifers are created equal, and some of them can run a high risk of contamination. We help you avoid the risk of unusable water by analyzing the location of your intended site for contaminants both natural and man-made. Our goal is to make certain that your well is not only functional and reliable, but completely safe for you, your family and your livestock.

Contact Us Before You Drill

The beauty of a properly drilled well is that it allows you to live in areas that are off the main grid, and to independently maintain your own water supply. American Water Surveyors wants to help you to keep that convenience and independence in a safe and affordable manner. Give us a call before you start planning a new well. We can help you to invest your resources wisely so you end up with a well that will serve you and your family for years to come.
