Find Well Water in Arizona, Find Well Water in California, Find Well Water in Nevada, Find Well Water in New Mexico, Find Well Water in Utah.

During the summer of 2018, Southwest Groundwater Surveyors.  Conducted Groundwater Surveys for many clients in the southwest United States, scientifically locating groundwater aquifers, and finding well water for our clients.

On one of our trips to the White Mountains in Arizona, one of our trucks was totaled when it hit an Elk.  It was nightfall and there was lightning flashing.  The poor guy ran right out in front of our truck on the highway.  Thankfully our crew was okay, but the truck didn't do so well.  Be careful out there fellow travelers.

Find Well Water Scientifically/Seismo Electric/Groundwater Survey

With Seismo-Electric Groundwater Surveying from Southwest Groundwater Surveyors it is now possible to find well water scientifically, before ever going to the expense of drilling. Often times people who need to drill a water well end up drilling a costly dry or low yielding well, because they had no way to know where the best drill site is, or the correct depth to drill.
But now with Seismo-Electric technology (also known as Electro-Seismic Surveying or Electro Kinetic Surveying - EKS)  The question of where to drill, how deep to drill, and whether to drill at all is no longer a guessing game.
Seismo-Electric Groundwater Surveying has been available in the United States since the mid 1990's; with the worldwide success of the technology, groundwater Surveyors now have the ability to see the underground aquifer, Before drilling ever begins.
This method has been successful in helping geologists, drillers, land developers, farmers, ranchers, golf courses, Utilities, and others who are in need of locating groundwater aquifers.
Because our technology has the ability to see the groundwater directly, our clients can then drill their well with the reasonable assurance that they are drilling at the optimal site, and to the best yielding depth. The Seismo-Electric instruments allow the surveyors to locate the optimal drill location, depth to drill (seeing groundwater for as deep as +/-1500 feet underground) and to estimate the yield of the well, prior to drilling.
Now with new developments in the technology (in the water signal to noise ratio) surveyors are able to filter out other naturally occurring  noises that previously interfered with the Seismo-Electric Effect.  This provides increased accuracy in the interpretation of the Data.

Electro Seismic Groundwater Surveying To Find A Well Drilling Site.

The '''seismoelectric Groundwater Surveying method''' (which is also known as electro seismic groundwater surveying or electro kinetic surveying) is based on the creation of electric signals in soils and rocks that is produced by seismic waves originating on the earth's surface. This technique was developed in the United Kingdom by Groundflow Ltd. and has been widely used throughout North America since the mid 1990's.  The primary use for seismoelectric technology is for locate aquifers, and to find well drilling site for a water well. The seismoelectric operator will collect the data at various locations on a property such as a farm, ranch, golf course etc. The data is then interpreted to determine three estimations as follows:
1. The optimal location (of the tested areas) for drilling the well.
2. The correct drill depth (to the base of the aquifer),
3. The potential yield of the well. (based on the strength of the seismoelectric signal produced).

Find Well Water in Arizona, California, Nevada, New Mexico, Utah, / Find Groundwater Before Drilling a Well

Locating groundwater for a well in difficult places is not only frustrating, it can be very expensive.

As anyone who has ever drilled a dry well can tell you.  It would be better if you can find ground water before drilling a well.  Now you can!

Find Water First Inc. dba Southwest Groundwater Surveyors are here to help.  Our Seismoelectric instruments and groundwater surveying method. were developed to be a portable version of a technology  that was developed in the oil industry.  We have the only method for seeing groundwater directly without drilling test wells, and we can see water underground to an average depth of 1500 feet below ground surface.


Lucerne Valley, CaliforniaMark F. of Lucerne Valley, California contacted us to see if we could find fresh water on his property. The area is known for having salty water in the top 200 feet below ground surface. Southwest Groundwater Surveyors was referred to Mark By Greg Solomon of Solomon Drilling and Pump Service in Lucerne Valley. After conducting a series of seismoelectric tests on Marks property it was determined that two sites showed promise of fresh water if drilled to a depth of 490'. Mark just called to inform us that Solomon Drilling and Pump Svc. has developed the well after drilling to 485'. The well casing was not perforated for the first 200' to prevent the salty water from contaminating the fresh water. Mark is enjoying 30 gallons per minute of fresh clean water in an area where only salty wells have been drilled before.

Johnson Valley California:
on June 30, 2017 Bill K. hired Southwest Groundwater Surveyors to locate the optimal well drilling site on his 20 acre lot in Johnson Valley Ca.  Today after six months, Bill called to inform us that he finally had his well drilled by Solomon Drilling and Pump.  The estimated depth of 440 feet was spot on and he is enjoying a 50 gallon per minute well.

Southwest Groundwater Surveyors / Aquifer Locating / Find Well Water in Nevada / groundwater location for well drilling

In February 2015 Ranch owner Tracy C. hired Southwest Groundwater Surveyors to conduct a series of aquifer locating tests to find well water in Nevada.  He had recently drilled a dry well.

After only fifteen test sights on Tracy's 680 acre ranch we were happy to find a groundwater location site for well drilling, that we estimated would yield 65 gallons per minute if drilled to 360 feet below ground surface.

We just received word from Tracy who said he just had the well drilled at the site and he is happy to be pumping 70 Gallons per minute after drilling to a depth of  370 feet.

Tracy has asked Southwest Groundwater Surveyors to come back and find him another well site.

See client testimonials here:

Seismoelectric surveying makes use of a phenomenon known as streaming potential, where the movement of subsurface water produces a voltage measurable on the ground surface.  Using a seismic pulse we create that movement. Prior to the 1990's the electrical signal from the seismic pulse impinging on subsurface groundwater was difficult to measure since other electrical noise, especially power line noise, contaminated the data.  However, Groundflow Ltd, based in the UK, discovered a new proprietary detection method that filters out electric noise and other naturally occurring noises so that the groundwater signal remains pure.  This enables Southwest Groundwater Surveyors to find well water and identify the best drilling location on your land prior to drilling.

We are able to see subsurface water to a depth of 1600 feet below ground.

Well drilling can be expensive and frustrating.  Our goal is to help our clients know if they have water for drilling a well.  

Our technology is the only way find subsurface groundwater, find the best drilling location, and estimate the depth and the yield prior to drilling.

Finding well water in Utah / Well Drilling Success

Southwest Groundwater Surveyors spent much of the summer months on a 60 square mile ranch finding well water in Utah. It is a very dry area where groundwater for wells is much needed but hard to find. After conducting surveys on various parts of the ranch trying to find well water, we recommended that our client drill on some of our best sites before doing any more testing. We are happy to report well drilling success.

We just received the following letter from our client...

"Hello Steve and Carolyn,
I just thought I would let you know that we just completed drilling on one of your better test sites which resulted in a very good well. We went down 495 feet and are still gathering data on gallons per minute, but we feel it will come in above the estimate. Thanks for your help. I will keep you posted. Dale."

We plan to go back in the spring to conduct additional testing.

Here are a few recent testimonial from satisfied clients...

June of 2017 
Bill K. hired Southwest Groundwater Surveyors to find the best well drilling site on his 20 acre lot in Johnson Valley California. Today Bill called to thank us, and to inform us that well drilling was just completed by Solomon Drilling and Pump. The well was drilled to the estimated depth of 440 feet below ground surface. Bill was happy to report that he now has a 50 gallon per minute well.

Hello Steve                                                                                                                                          May 10,2016
We finally had the well dug and a pump put in. We went the entire length of the water column.
Results were as your report showed: (Site 1AM is located approx. 135 feet east/northeast of the well.  The data indicate the base of the aquifer is 450 feet BGS.  The estimated yield is category C. (5-10 GPM)
Finished well at 450 feet and Water static level was at 133 Feet.  Well tested at +12 GPM .  Static level holds steady at 141 feet pumping
12 GPM.

Just wanted to thank you and pass on the positive results.
Prescott Valley, AZ

A letter from a client near Tombstone AZ. 
(We estimated the water table to be 70' BGS and the yield to be 5 to 10 GPM.)

Hi Steve,                                                                                                                            Sept. 17, 2017
I thought I would touch base with you regarding the status of our well.  I'm happy to say that the well was drilled two days ago, and the well pump and components wer installed this morning.  The great news is that the well drillers began hitting water at 80 feet at site location #3.  All of us were shocked to begin seeing water so shallow.  They continued drilling and decided to stop at a depth of 180 feet, since the flow rate was 10 to 12 GPM.  We couldn't be happier with the results that your seismoelectric testing offered.  Your estimate of the potential flow rate at location #3 was conservative, but it made the actual results that much sweeter, especially since it far exceeded our expectations.  And even though the testing was a little costly, it was well worth it in the end.  Our time here at the cabin will be far more enjoyable now that we have well water.  Thanks again for helping us with this process.

Gratefully  David and Mary G.
