PRICES: GROUNDWATER SURVEYS IN CALIFORNIA

Our price structure is based on the property that can be surveyed. Some terrain might be difficult for us to survey and will be even more difficult for the drilling company to access their equipment. While rocky, uneven land can pose a challenge, we will still offer the most affordable water prospector prices in the area.

Please contact our office to discuss the details and survey options that we have available. For any property that is larger than 10 acres, we can offer an exploratory survey. This allows us to cover more ground, but we will sacrifice some of the detail that we would get on a standard groundwater survey. This is a cost-effective way to find water on large acreages. Many parcels do not require a survey of the entire parcel.

California groundwater locating prices can be high. Please contact our office so we can discuss your needs and give you some cost-effective options. There may be additional Travel and Lodging charges depending on your location. Contact our office for an accurate quote. Please let our office know if your property is cross fenced or has electrical power lines on or near the property.
