When you turn on your faucet, you might not be thinking about where your water comes from, but it’s worth considering which water sources make it possible for you to wash dishes or run a bath. There are a number of different sources that are tapped into in order to supply houses, businesses, parks, farms and more with clean water. In many cases, different water sources are actually combined in order to deliver a steady supply of water. Water from rivers, lakes and streams is often combined with water in underground stores, or groundwater, in order to meet the demand for water.
In areas that are disconnected from municipal water sources, wells can be established to tap into groundwater sources. If you are considering digging a well, find out more about tapping into groundwater and getting a water survey in California.
The connection between groundwater and surface water
Even though we think of groundwater and surface water as being different and distinct, there is a strong relationship between both of these water sources. When it rains, water seeps through soil and rocks and becomes groundwater. Even though this water is beneath the surface, it continues to move and may resurface in a body of water like a lake or river. Regardless of whether you get your water from above or below the surface, it is likely that you are getting some kind of mixture of surface water and groundwater. It’s important to consider the connection between these two water sources, since any form of contamination, above or below the surface, can contaminate both surface and groundwater.
If you are thinking about drilling a well, you will need to locate a reliable source of groundwater. You should keep in mind that groundwater is not replenished easily, so you should find a source that can provide you with a sustainable supply of water well into the future. Without a professional water survey in California, you might not be getting the most out of your water well. By hiring a professional to examine your property and help locate the best spot to dig a well, you can ensure that you are tapping into a reliable source of groundwater. Once you’ve established a location for your well and had a professional team handle the drilling, it’s also a good idea to invest in water testing. By testing your water, you can be certain that your water source is safe, clean and suitable for use in your home or business.
