Understand the Process
You can't simply have a well drilled wherever you wish to place it, there must be an adequate water supply in the area. Drill in the wrong spot, and you could end up with a low yielding or dry well and a very expensive project that will essentially go to waste. Whether your home is a new construction project or you want to place a well on land where you already reside, it's important to know how the groundwater locating process works. You'll need to know the approximate depth and amount of water in the location where you want to put your well. Understanding geology and hydrology are a big help, but you can also learn basic information about groundwater systems that can prove to be very valuable.
