1. How do you determine where to drill?
Circumstances particular to a given property tend to determine the best possible location for a well. Some factors are:
2. Can a well be drilled within the city limits?
The short answer is yes, however there may be additional permitting expenses and requirements. Some cities don’t allow private wells within the city limits.
3. How long does the well drilling process generally take?
A domestic well generally takes one to three days to drill and complete. At that point it is ready for the pump installation. The time required for permit approval can take anywhere from a day to 4 weeks depending on the jurisdiction, specifics of the parcel, and workload of the permitting department.
4. How do you know how much water my well will produce?
There is no way to accurately determine the production of a well until after it has been completed and tested. However, there are many areas where we have extensive knowledge of well depths and production. Typically, we can give a very good estimate in these areas.
5. Do you have to get a permit to drill a water well?
Yes. The state of California requires a permit be obtained for every well drilled.
