Three Factors to Consider Before Drilling a New Well

Before installing a new well, it is important to take three key factors into consideration. By taking these factors into consideration, you will make better decisions regarding the placement and installation of your well, thereby helping to guarantee better results. To that end, here are the three main factors that you should consider before having your well drilled and installed.


On average, wells in the United States run anywhere between one hundred and five hundred feet deep. Several factors will be used to help determine the proper depth for the well you are installing, including how the well will be used and the geology of the land. Hiring a professional to drill your well will help to ensure your well is drilled to the proper depth for your property and needs.


As already mentioned, the geology of the land is an important factor in determining the depth of your well. Identifying the type of ground and soil on your property is the first step in determining where the well should be drilled as well as how deep it should be drilled. The geology will also help in determining the location of underground water.

Chemicals and Toxins

Lastly, it is important to consider the location of potential chemicals and toxins that could get into your water supply. Obviously, you don’t want to drill your well too near to an area where chemicals or other toxins have a likelihood of being spilled, as this means those chemicals and toxins will seep into your water supply. Consider things such as agricultural fertilizer and waste dumping areas when determining where to place your well.
