The people who work for companies that drill, construct and maintain wells don’t just drill, construct and maintain wells; they’re also often seen as local groundwater experts.
For example, since well servicers have experience finding water, leaders in the region will often tap that experience to inform decisions about zoning and permitting. In addition, developers and homeowners often seek the advice of a well servicer before investing in a property, and then, about where and where not to place their well, to ensure long life and productivity.
Any expert will tell you that their advice is only as good as the facts on which it is based.
Useful groundwater information informs smarter services and solutions. For example, with information that indicates that a water table is changing, a well servicer can help customers avoid expensive failures with less expensive changes (lowering a pump in a well is a lot cheaper than replacing it.) A well servicer can also help a consumer with simple conservation techniques, need be. For example, we have a well servicer friend who works with his customers to help them become water neutral by recommending simple steps like planting trees and creating water gardens to ensure that water that makes it to the land is used smartly and then returned to the ground. Finally, well servicers with facts about groundwater are better at finding water in the first place.
Well servicers who know about the health of their customer’s wells and water tables aren’t just well servicers, they’re groundwater stewards.
