Community well systems involve much more than just drilling a well and installing a pump. State public health rules dictate the location, size and construction of the wells, pumps, tanks, and distribution system—based on the facility being served.
West Consultants team of experienced engineers, land development consultants and surveyors can help navigate through the requirements to determine the best system suitable for the construction site. West can also assist in acquiring the necessary permits.
Many projects such as churches, campgrounds, parks, summer camps, restaurants, schools, and housing developments are located where public water service is not available. While individual wells for single-family homes are usually permitted by county health department staff and designed by the installers, larger systems are more complicated, have more governmental regulations, and may or may not be feasible depending on the characteristics of the land for development.
West Consultants has designed and permitted numerous community wells and water systems throughout western North Carolina.
