American Water Surveyors services ranchers, farmers, homeowners, golf course developers, municipalities and private water companies in site selection for drilling a water well. The use of our proprietary software and seismic technology can detect the presence or absence of groundwater. If water is detected we can provide the approximate depth and yield range measured in gallons per minute or liters per second. Water well drillers get paid by the foot whether they hit water or not, so we save our clients thousands of dollars by avoiding drilling dry wells or drilling on sites that have very little yield potential.
