Dairy Farms

Ranches and Livestock

There are many ranches in the Southwest that need stock wells for their cattle. Southwest Groundwater Surveyors can help. During our testing for groundwater, we can see groundwater directly to a depth of up to 1,500 feet below the ground surface using our patented, portable seismoelectric technology.

The portability of our equipment means that we can survey anywhere that is accessible to a four-wheel-drive pickup truck.

If you need stock wells or irrigation wells, call Southwest Groundwater Surveyors today. We can find groundwater before you drill.

Land Developers

The relationship between water, growth, and land use is a global problem. Here in the Southwest, our limited water supplies are quickly becoming the number one environmental issue. The crisis is being faced by our communities, people, and businesses. Land developers are increasingly turning to groundwater location services to find well water. Before you begin drilling, it’s a wise investment to contact the experienced team at Southwest Groundwater Surveyors. We take the guesswork out of locating the best place to drill for well water.

Make Southwest Groundwater Surveyors a valuable partner in your planning as you work towards integrating water, growth, and land use in your next development.


Conservation is a way of life for dairy families. They value every resource, especially water. Dairies work in harmony with nature to grow crops, produce healthy dairy products, and protect our limited resources. Dairy farms grow most of their own cattle feed, and this locally grown product requires water. Dairies need to develop additional wells to ensure continued production.

Southwest Groundwater Surveyors helps dairies reduce the costs associated with digging dry wells. We are a valuable asset to dairies needing to locate groundwater in the southwestern states. Our accuracy in locating well water not only saves dairy farmers thousands of dollars but provides them with the necessary water to sustain and grow their dairy farms.
