Technology for locating groundwater aquifers Prior to well drilling

A technology for locating groundwater aquifers and determining the best location and depth to drill for a new water well, has been available in the United States since 2004. It was the brainchild of Groundflow Ltd. of the U.K. and Was introduced to the U.S. By Ervin Kraemer of National Groundwater Surveying in Washington. Since that time there have been many satisfied new well owners, including farmers, ranchers, land owners, and utility companies among others, who have benifited from this money saving technology.

The benifits are in the form of cost savings of well development, eliminating the need to drill expensive bore holes and pinpointing the best location for drilling where the expected yield will be greatest.

The ability to virtually see underground water through the use of electronically measuring the movement of water against underground rock formations. Has been a big advance in earth science.

There are now several companies in the U.S. using this technology to help find groundwater for people in need of a well water location. Among them are...
