Why Assess Your Ground Water Resources?


Over fifty percent of North Carolinians obtain their water supply from ground water, through private domestic wells or public or private water ground water systems. Ground water can supply abundant, high-quality water for your potable and industrial needs, but obtaining and maintaining that supply is not always easy.

Before you purchase land for, or break ground on, a new residential, commercial, or industrial project, you should know whether you will have adequate ground water to meet your current and future needs. Failure to do so prior to project commencement can cost you hundreds of thousands of dollars and years of frustration. Preparing your site plan in advance so that potentially-productive well sites are preserved will not only help you meet your current demand, it can help you provide the water supply necessary for future expansion of your project.

Additionally, just like an automobile, wells need routine maintenance to operate at peak efficiency. Keeping accurate records of simple well operation parameters, along with some simple rehabilitation techniques, can keep your well or well system supplying the water you need for years to come.

Assessing your ground water resources, whether for future or existing projects, will save you money and headaches in the future. Knowing the state of your ground water supply will also keep you ready to wisely capitalize on future expansion opportunities that may present themselves.
