Where Can You Drill a Well?, Dimmitt, Texas

Adding a well to your property is an excellent way to ensure you always have access to a clean water supply. However, before installing one, you have to make sure that the land meets the requirements. If you’re considering hiring a well drilling contractor, consider the following tips about well placement. 

1. Water Flow & Accessibility

You’ll need to connect with a natural water source to feed the well. The drill site needs to be far from utility lines, septic systems, and boundary lines. The soil also needs to be soft enough to drill through. The depth of your well will depend on the water table in the area. You’ll also need to pick an elevated site that won’t flood. A well drilling contractor can help you choose an ideal location. 

2. Convenience

For example, it shouldn’t encroach on other properties, be an eyesore, or sit too close to a neighboring well. To avoid any complications, consider every angle before hiring a well drilling contractor. Let your neighbors know ahead of time, so no issues arise.

3. Contaminants

You need to protect the well against contaminants. If pesticides, chemicals, and other harmful substances enter the water supply, they can cause digestive problems and other health issues. Make sure that the groundwater is flowing away from the well so that contaminants from farm runoff and construction aren’t drawn to the supply. You’ll also want to hire well service professionals to conduct a soil test, as some areas may have higher concentrations of arsenic, selenium, boron, and other chemicals that can interfere with water quality.
