How to Find the Best Place for Well Drilling

When you’re building a home or installing a new well, one of the first questions you have to answer is where you should drill the well in the first place. As one of the best at well drilling, St Paul well drilling company Hartmann Well Drilling can give you some insight on some of the most common ways people can figure out where to have their wells drilled.

One of the main things a well drilling company like Hartmann Well Drilling will look for is the isolation distance. For example, wells must be at least 10 feet from a gas or electric line. Some of the other isolation distances we regularly encounter are 20 feet from tested and approved sewer services, 35 feet from a vertical heat exchanger and from a lake, pond or river and 50 feet from a septic or holding tank. And any agricultural chemicals must be stored at least 150 feet away from the well. If there are any unused wells on the property, the new well must be at least 50 feet from it too.

Another consideration for well drilling is future accessibility. We want to be sure the well is going to be easily accessed later on in the future for regular maintenance and any repair work that might need to be done. So being sure the well drilling takes place somewhere that future workers can get to is key when figuring out where a well should be placed.

But if you hire a company like Hartmann Well Drilling, you won’t have to worry about any of that. We have plenty of experience in figuring out where to start the well drilling process, and we know exactly what to look for.
