How much does it cost for Well Water Finders to survey my land for water?
The first acre surveyed is $900. Each additional acre surveyed is $400.
The Well Water Finders service includes:
1. Pre-Assessment Report
- Research of locally drilled water wells in your area.
- Research of local water utility companies that have facilities in your area.
- Research of common geological formations in your area.
- A discussion about your water needs on the property.
- The report is e-mailed to you before our visit.
2. On-Site Underground Imaging Survey
- We bring our underground imaging equipment to your property and conduct a survey (or surveys) based on where you would like to place a potential well.
- Each site survey captures the water level data under approximately 1 acre (200 ft. x 200 ft.)
- Number of Sites to Survey:
- Most customers don't survey their entire property. They start with an area where placement of a water well would be beneficial. Each survey takes about 15 minutes and we can average about 6-8 surveys a day depending on the distance between sites and terrain.
- If you are needing a residential well on a small property, in most cases, one survey should suffice.
- If you are looking for an ag, commercial, or high-volume well, it would normally take at least 4 survey locations to confirm that sufficient water exists under your land and that there is ample connectivity. (To support an ag well, you would need thick, connected bands of water seen in numerous areas under your land).
3. Final Report
- The Final Report is e-mailed to you within a couple of days after your survey. It's a document that you can share with your driller. In addition, our technology collects data very deep underneath your land. If we pick up signatures of oil and gas, we'll let you know that too.

How much does it cost for Well Water Finders to survey my land for oil and gas?
Our patented EM Locator technology that we use to find water can also be used to find signatures of oil and gas! The set-up and price is different, so if you're interested in water surveys, the pricing above applies. If you're interested in what we can do for you in the oil and gas sector, read on!
The charge is $2,000 per square mile (sq mi). We can average 2 sq mi a day. If you need us to perform surveys on additional square miles, we can do that. We cover all the expenses for our overnight stays, you just pay for the surveys. You can pay the full amount here or contact us and we’ll email you an invoice for 50% to start the project and the other 50% will be due upon completion. Here's what the survey includes:
One (1) Square Mile On-Site Underground Imaging Survey
- We bring our underground imaging equipment to your property and conduct one survey based on the location you would like tested.
- The survey is made up of data collections that we take at 4 sites spaced evenly across 1/2-mile squares, forming one sq mi.
- The Final Report is e-mailed to you within a couple of days after your survey. It will clearly outline where signs of oil and gas signatures are present. This can help you determine whether moving forward with a seismic survey is justified.

After I've scheduled my visit, is there anything you need from me?
There are three pieces of information that we will need from you before our appointment. 1. A copy of your last real estate survey of the property (if available), 2. A copy of some type of proof that you own the property (a deed, a tax record), and 3. A signed hold-harmless waiver that we will e-mail to you.
