Q: How deep is an average water well in our area?

A: Most wells in our area range from 60-300 feet depending on the location. Sometimes in the higher mountains and certain areas water wells can be deeper. Geo Studies are able to make a knowledgeable estimate as to the depth of a water well for your property by meeting with you and researching other wells in that specific area.

Q: What kind of casing will be used in the water well construction?

A: The type of ground is the determining factor as to which type of casing will be used in the well. For instance, if you have alluvial ground (gravel, sand, etc.) then steel casing will be needed to keep the hole from collapsing. However if you have hard rock (Limestone, Granite, Shale, etc.) you will be able to use thermoplastic casing (PVC). The casing is used to protect the hole from getting silt in it and also protects your pump from getting elements into it when pumping the water.

Q: How much water is needed to run an average Industry?

A: A 600 deep well should produce at least 50000 to 60000 gallons per minute. If you are planning to increase your productivity it should have about 100000 gallons per minute.
