Well Drilling Services

Choosing a Water Well

Is your well for your home (demographic) or for irrigation?  Or maybe you need both?

We understand choosing the right well can be stressful, but we are here to help! That's why we assign a well coordinator to every drilling customer.

We have a series of questions to ask you to help you determine how to choose the right well for your needs - now and in the future and your next steps to get started.

New Construction - What is Next?

Thinking of taking the next step? Here is what you need to do:

  • Contact your local County or Health Department with a parcel number to see if you can add a water well, and what is needed.

  • Contact a well septic design company or an engineer to schedule a site visit and get approved to drill. They decide where the "well stake" goes. Note: different counties have different rules.

  • Connect with Alcorn Pump & Water Filtration to get your well coordinator assigned and get an estimate for drilling and to review the process and next steps.

Site Preparation 

Getting your location prepared for drilling once you are approved to drill:

  • Once you receive your "well approval to drill from the health department" and you have accepted an estimate, we schedule a site visit to advise your in preparation of your site as needed.

  • Some things to think about:

    • Don't touch or move the stake placed by the septic designer or engineer!​

    • There must be clearance overhead of the site for the well for a 60-foot telescoping drill tower.

    • If the area is too soft, you may need to add gravel or other amendments to ensure the weight of a drilling rig can be supported without sinking. 

    • The ground must be level at the drilling site.

    • We bring a minimum of two rigs that weigh over 40,000 lbs.

    • If you are building a new home, fire suppression systems require a minimum of 300 gallons of above-ground water storage in a reservoir.  Alcorn will add the reservoir plumbing to the mainline, ensuring proper pressure and volume, when the permanent system is installed prior to a fire marshall inspection. If you have questions about fire suppression, please call us!

A variable frequency drive (VFD) pump pictured above is a temporary pump site so the owner has water during the construction process.

The basic pressurized pumping system with a pressure tank to the right is a customized temporary pump site designed to meet the specific needs for this customer.


Where possible, once the well houses are built and their permits are finalized, we will reuse some equipment to save the customer time and money by incorporating this temporary equipment into their permanent pumping system.
