When you live in a remote area and the area is mostly rocky terrain, you may have a difficult time trying to locate a good spot for water well drilling. Thankfully, there are some scientists you can talk to about your new water well who can help you find the best spot to dig.
Talking to Geologists
A geologist can recognize areas on your rocky property where water may be hiding down below. Certain types of rock, such as limestone, are dead giveaways for areas where water trickles down and sinks below ground. If you are not very good at recognizing rock types and variants, then engaging a geologist in conversation about your property and a well project will definitely help. He or she may even be able to suggest a type of kit that tests rocks for the presence of water and water solubility, which are both indicators of the presence of underground aquifers. If you are unsure how to even use such a kit, a geologist might be willing to show you how or come out to your property for a fee to help with these seemingly complex tests.
Talking to Hydrologists
Hydrologists often work side-by-side with geologists when searching for possible sources of fresh water. A hydrologist also maps out known areas where water has been discovered underground and/or where well drilling companies have already dug wells. In addition to this information, hydrologists log the depths of known wells, monitor water flow for changes, and can tell you where the best spot in your yard is for a
Talking to Seismologists
Seismologists study the movement of large, rocky areas with the intent to catch and/or prevent seismic (earthquake) activity. Many of the world's earthquakes are
