Did you know that this week is National Ground Water Awareness Week? From March 5 to March 11, 2017, water well drilling companies will educate the public on the importance of clean drinking water.

Why should you care about this observance? While many of us take clean water for granted, you can’t always control what happens in the ground around your well. It could become contaminated by pesticides, fertilizers, and other chemicals. Bacteria and parasites can also enter your water source. That’s why you need to make sure your well is properly installed. You should have your well tested each year to make sure it’s not contaminated.

It’s estimated that around 34 million people in the United States use well water. Many residents here in the South Carolina Lowcountry use wells. That’s because so much of the land around Beaufort, Bluffton, Walterboro, and Hilton Head Island is relatively rural. But many well owners don’t take the extra step of having their well water tested each year.

When you get a new well from Pinckney Well Drilling, we’ll take all necessary precautions to make sure your water is clean. Our company has served the Lowcountry of South Carolina, as well as the Southeastern US, since 1898. That’s 119 years of experience—more than anyone else in our state. As our business has grown over the years, we’ve expanded our knowledge to stay up-to-date on the latest technology and safety measures. Whether you choose us to install a new water well, geothermal well, irrigation well, or agricultural well, we’ll do it the right way. We adhere to all permitting procedures from state and local governments and we follow all DHEC regulations. Our strict attention to detail has made us a trusted contractor for many area institutions. This includes the military, city and county governments, and educational facilities.

Do you have questions about the safety and purity of your well water? Call Pinckney Well Drilling. We’re happy to give you the information you need. We’ll also come out and take a look at your well in Beaufort, Bluffton, Hilton Head Island, Walterboro, and surrounding areas.
