Ground-Water Services, Inc.

Ground-Water Services, Inc. (GWS), with our experience in geological, geophysical and environmental sciences and with our business based on God’s Word, endeavors to provide the most useful and economical water well site selection services available. Science helps us to understand God’s creation, and God’s Word guides us to conduct business with integrity. 

Our primary mission is to locate wells that will tap the greatest and most sustainable ground-water flow that exists beneath the earth’s surface within the limits of the customer’s property and that will be in compliance with established water supply pollution control regulations pertaining to proper water well placement. In connection with the primary mission, GWS endeavors to educate our customers about the truths of modern geophysical techniques, about the limitations of topographic analyses for well placement and the misunderstandings about dowsing.

Geophysical surveys result in knowledge of the subsurface. Surveying the most acreage possible will allow all potential water-bearing zones to be investigated. Although GWS cannot and does not offer a guarentee as to the productivity of water-bearing zones beneath the ground surface, in our opinion, a successful drilling program can and should be based on the most subsurface knowldege possible prior to drilling.

Subsurface knowledge and God’s Word help us to realize that hydrogeological conditions are not the same everywhere within bedrock aquifers. The ground water in the earth is derived from and replenished (recharged) by local rainfall. “For the a land of hills and valleys, and drinketh water of the rain of heaven.” Deuteronomy 11: 11. Ground water does not exist everywhere, but it may be very abundant in some locations. Psalm 63:1 states that “O God, thou art my God; early will I seek a dry and thirsty land, where no water is.” In contrast, in Numbers 20: 8 God told Moses “... speak ye unto the rock before their eyes; and it shall give forth his water,...”

Another equally important mission of GWS is to conduct business with integrity. This, among other things, means to offer the best professional services for a reasonable price. Irrespective of the proposal not-to-exceed cost, we only charge the amount necessary to accomplish our mission. In addition, there is no percentage mark-up on expenses nor on outside specialty services required during the project.

Another exercise of integrity is that we keep our customers informed throughout the project concerning the information gathered. Proverbs 20:7 states “The just man walketh in his integrity:...” Psalm 25:21 states “Let integrity and uprightness preserve me: for I wait on thee.” By applying the truth’s of God’s Word, GWS endeavors to live and work within the abundant life as promised by Jesus in John 10:10, “ I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.”

By putting our experience, knowledge and God’s Word into practice, we offer you, our customer, the very best services possible. Although every well’s productivity cannot be estimated with 100% accuracy, GWS endeavors to provide knowledge and truth for the faithful investment in a well, and God willing, a blessing for you, the customer.
