Water can substantially increase the value of your property and Southwest Groundwater Surveyors can convert that hard-to-sell property, into one that is in demand, by helping you find water underground.

From single-family homes to large developments, to golf courses, Southwest Groundwater Surveyor can save you thousands of dollars by locating water for a well for you to drill it. By helping you in testing for well water, we locate the best well site before having a well drilled.

Southwest Groundwater Surveyors is a groundwater surveying company servicing the southwest U.S.A., using scientific instruments and seismo-electric methods to find well water, determine the depth to the base of the aquifer and estimate the yield, before well drilling. Through our water well site locating service, we find the best possible drill site for those who rely on groundwater for their water needs.


A new three-bedroom single-family home for a family of four is projected to use 174,000 gallons of water per year. If your home doesn't have enough water, Southwest Groundwater Surveyors will use our state-of-the-art water locating technology to show you where to drill.

Knowing what is below the ground is extremely valuable. This can save you thousands of dollars and lower your chances of having to pay someone to drill a dry well.

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 1500 feet below the ground surface using our patented, portable seismo-electric technology.

The portability of our equipment means that we can survey anywhere that is accessible to a four-wheel-drive pickup truck. We can find groundwater before you drill.

If you need stock wells or irrigation wells, call Southwest Groundwater Surveyors today.

Land Developers

The relationship between water, growth, and land use is a global problem. Here in the southwest United States, 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. Therefore, before you begin drilling, it is a wise investment to contact our 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 also need to grow most of their own cattle feed, and this locally grown product also means a greater need for water. Dairies need to develop additional wells, for continued production. 

Southwest Groundwater Surveyors helps dairies reduce the costs associated with digging dry wells. We have become a valuable asset to dairies in locating 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.
