Always Keep Copies of Well Reports

Some states require well reporting and have actually made it mandatory by law. A variety of processes are improved when there are more well reports available. However, it is not up to homeowners to fill out these reports, but they should make it a point to hang onto a copy of them.

Homeowners are given copies of these reports, although some can be withheld until full payment is made to the company entrusted with well drilling Salisbury NC or repair. Within a well report is the location of the well, its depth and diameter. The water level is also noted along with the driller of the well and name and address of the property owner. The local geology is also noted and this applies to the local materials and any information that is relevant in that area.
