Ground Water Basics
Beneath the ground, across the Midwest, are natural reservoirs of pure, wholesome ground water. This water fills the cracks and fractures in rock and in beds of sand. This renewable resource comes from rain and melted snow that filters very slowly through soil and rock. Over 130 million Americans get their drinking water from ground water.

The Drilling Process
Water well contractors use drilling machines, or rigs, to access this water. The well is actually just a specially engineered hole with several different elements. The diameter of the actual hole varies from 6-12 inches, depending on the formations anticipated and the desired yield. Wells are cased to protect the well from contaminants. Serving as a structural retainer, casing and/or a liner, may be used if shale or cavernous formations are encountered. When water is encountered, well screen or perforated pipe is placed in the water bearing formations. A pump is installed and you are ready to enjoy fresh, pure water direct from God's earth.

The cost of installing a water well is usually quoted by the foot for drilling and casing the well. The cost by foot can vary according to the difficulty of drilling as well as the type of material used. It is for these reasons that the depth of the well plays a crucial part in determining the total price. Other components such as the pump equipment required for the job and materials for installing the well are also considered. A set-up charge or mobilization of equipment along with state water well permits are included in the price. All certification paperwork is completed by Jesse Yoakum Well Drilling and is included in the cost of the water well.
