Groundwater Location Services

Find well water in your area by calling Southwest Groundwater Surveyors of Oak Hills, California today.  We offer in-depth groundwater surveying to scientifically help you locate the optimal water well drilling sites on your property.  As a result, you will have a reasonable assurance of drilling a successful well to the correct depth and on the right spot.  This eliminates the worry about drilling a dry or low-yield well.

Importance of Location

Water well drilling can be costly, if you're given incomplete or incorrect information about the location of the new well. That's why it's important that when you start your well drilling project, that you're not just doing guesswork. It is crucial to know as precisely as possible the locations and estimated volume of water before any well drilling efforts are undertaken. Our expert groundwater surveyors will eliminate the guesswork for you and ensure success in finding the perfect spot.

Highly Advanced Equipment

Our patented computer equipment is the latest generation of seismoelectric geophysical technology, which is being used to find well water. Unlike traditional water dowsing, this seismoelectric technology, developed by geophysicists Dr. Richard Clark and Dr. John Millar of Groundflow Ltd. has been proven to consistently provide accurate groundwater information.

How It Works

With our computerized Seismo-Electric - AKA Electro-Seismic - instruments, we collect electric signals generated by the passage of seismic compression waves, which are sent through the ground. These waves are transmitted using either a hammer/plate for depths up to 300 feet, or the "buffalo" black powder charge for depths to 1,600 feet. The seismic wave then moves the water in saturated sand, gravel, and rocks slightly. The water is displaced, causing a small but measurable electric signal, which returns to the surface and is recorded by our highly sensitive equipment.

Understanding the Data

Once the collected data is processed, our professional water surveyors provide you with a detailed report of our findings. This includes the best place to locate and drill a well, the depth to drill the well, and the approximate yield in gallons per minute. If there is no water present, then there will be no signal indicating an aquifer.

Why Choose Us?

Southwest Groundwater Surveyors have experience in understanding the geological diversities of the American Southwest. Our highly trained water surveyors know the techniques required to collect accurate groundwater inforamtion in a variety of situations. By incorporating local geologic information and indications from our seismoelectric data, we provide the most accurate scientific analysis involving correct drilling site and depth.
