The South Atlantic Well Drillers Association has produced two extensive guides to help educate the public about water wells and groundwater. They are presented online and in brochure form.

The first is Katie's Well: A Kid's Guide to Water Wells and Groundwater, which is aimed kids (and curious adults). Did you know that the water we drink today is the same water dinosaurs drank millions of years ago? Let Katie tell the story.

The second publication is A Consumer's Guide to Water Wells. If a person is planning to have a well drilled or is buying a home that's on a well, this is good reading. It is intended to give consumers the information they need to make informed decisions about well ownership and maintenance.

An educated consumer is a better customer for drilling contractors. Take advantage of these efforts by the South Atlantic Well Drillers. For more information, go to, or call 540-740-3329.
