Well Watch Program
WHAT IS EONíS WELL WATCH PROGRAM?
Watch is the service designed for water well owners and operators. We will measure
and calculate available volume of water in your well and evaluate your water
quality. We will also evaluate your current water supply based on the groundwater
situation in your area. Our staff will provide suggestions and recommendations
on the most optimal pumping rate during draught conditions and advice on how
to mitigate potential issues before they become a problem. All work will be
performed by a registered professional hydrogeologist and groundwater engineer.
In the worst case, we will design a well upgrade or replacement for you, and
attempt to help you locate a reasonable and capable driller if you need one.
HYDROGEOLOGICAL AND GROUNDWATER ENGINEERING SERVICES
The Science of Hydrogeology is the branch of geology that deals with the occurrence,
distribution, and effect of ground water. Groundwater engineering is the science
of design and implementation of groundwater structures including water wells.
Both are necessary for an optimal design, implementation, and operation of your
water well. Even the best pump and the most sophisticated and expensive water
treatment system will not deliver quality, healthy, and potable water from an
improperly designed, dry, or contaminated well.
IMPORTANCE OF WATER WELL DESIGN AND MAINTENANCE
Water supply wells are engineering structures designed to extract groundwater
from underground storage reservoirs called aquifers. The quality and the extractable
volume of groundwater varies not only among individual aquifers, but also within
each aquifer with depth and well position. For example, a deeper well is not
always a better well. The quality of an individual well varies with the volume
of water stored in the aquifer. The water quality may significantly deteriorate
during a drought. Public water supply organizations and larger corporations
have water wells designed and maintained by professionals. It means that the
well is positioned, constructed and maintained to optimally balance both supply
and quality demands. A proper depth, length, material, type and diameter of
screened section is calculated and matched with the appropriate gradation of
gravel pack. A pollution-protective seal and a well head assembly is installed,
before the well is developed. Then both aquifer and well are tested for the
design of the extraction pump and optimized pumping regime. Water is also regularly
sampled for quality tests to insure it meets drinking water standards. Operators
of such wells are not prone to be prepared for the effects of drought. They
are much more likely to deal with it through a specialized professional service
firm, such as ours. The Eon Well Watch Program is making such a service affordable
for individual home owners, farmers and small businesses, which are generally
in a more difficult position when it comes to a water source replacement.
WHAT ELSE SHOULD I KNOW?
We often receive calls from our clients, their plumbers, or pump suppliers, when it is too late. The well is dry, partially filled with sediment, or in the worst case, aquifer compromised. Your existing well may be damaged beyond repair if not maintained and operated properly during a drought. It may take weeks or months before the water starts running from your faucet again. By participating in our program, you will have a complete peace of mind. Our objective is to restore and maintain your wellís soundness in close cooperation with you.
HOW TO START
Find the location of your well, gather any available information about it, such as well construction, pump type, plumbing and water conditioning system, make sure your well is accessible (e.g. test the key if necessary), and call, E-mail or fax our office before it is too late.
AT FEES YOU CAN AFFORDIf you own or operate a simple family house well, our first monitoring visit to your house costs only $75.00. Fees for our subsequent services are based on your wellís individual condition and services required by you. An annual fee for Well Watch regular physical monitoring of a standard well in good condition and easy access may be as low as $150.00. Our toll free number makes it even easier for you, so please, call us to schedule your first well call: 1-877-4EON-INC (1-877-436-6462).
