Wells greatly vary in depth, water volume and water quality. Water well drillers must create an excavation or structure in the ground by digging, driving, boring, or drilling to access groundwater in underground aquifers. Once water is encountered, the drillers need to keep a close watch on the drilling process.
There are some safety concerns that water well drillers may encounter. They are exposed to high levels of noise while working. Another safety concern is electrical safety. Fatalities occur while water well drillers are drilling and/or servicing a water pump or when the rig contacts overhead power lines. Water well drillers need great skill to guide and control a water well drill as it penetrates sand, gravel, clay and solid rock formations deep underground.
Few people give any thought to how a deep vertical hole in sand or in solid rock must be constructed and how the drilled pieces of rock are removed from deep below the surface. It is amazing how drillers stop the hole from collapsing before the lining is put in. Compare it to drilling a root canal. Water well drillers must specially engineer and extract refuse from a comparatively small hole. Complications include a lack of light in the depths of the hole and the difficulty in removing the rock and soils while drilling. With this in mind, using American Water Surveyors before hiring water well drillers makes these circumstances less stressful.
Hiring water well drillers can be expensive. American Water Surveyors has a low cost non-intrusive aquifer quality mapping system. These maps form the basis for water abstraction policy, aggregate extraction, and/or well site planning at a small fraction of the cost of drilling. Drilling costs can be reduced by specifying where and how deep to drill. American Water Surveyors use the GF3500 which defines both the permeability and the depth of aquifers, making it possible to estimate the flow of a well. Be it dental or ground water, many people suffer from drilling anxiety! With the efficiency of American Water Surveyors, anxiety is relieved and thus choosing a water well driller becomes a satisfying experience. Contact 877-734-7661 www.wefindwater.com
