About Us

We Find Fresh Water for Long-Term Security

AquaterreX is a global environmental services organization with a mission to broadly implement effective water and food security solutions. We find and deliver high-quality, healthy fresh groundwater that can be managed sustainably, assuring our customers’ long-term water security and future.

How We Work

Finding good, sustainable, high-volume water is a science, not an art.

Our unique Deep Seated Water (DSW) technology employs geology, environmental, and earth sciences with a range of proprietary algorithms and methodologies to identify and analyze geologic, hydrologic, atmospheric, and a multitude of additional data and parameters to locate reliable sources of Deep Seated Water. This includes information from multiband satellite imagery data; geologic and airborne geophysical data collection; and in-situ observation and data collection through multiple sets of patented ground instrumentation. This allows us to pinpoint locations for Deep Seated Water wells with near 100% accuracy. Over 1500 wells have been drilled using these technologies in Australia, USA, Africa and Asia.

After locating and producing fresh water, we can help implement improved water management strategies as well as proprietary soil monitoring, soil remediation, restoration, and conditioning methods. This will help agricultural producers transition away from chemical farming to more regenerative practices.

We want to help you gain water security. We offer a free consulting service to explore how we can help solve the freshwater challenges of municipalities, agriculture, industry, developers, and others. Contact us to find out how we can help.

Sustainably Safeguarding Our Planet

Our goal is to safeguard the planet so that it remains capable of sustaining life for all future generations.

Drought, hunger, scarcity, and contamination cause too much hardship on our planet. We are driven by a belief that Deep Seated Water is the missing piece of a successful water strategy and a key solution to our world’s freshwater problems. By providing sustainable, abundant, fresh water, we hope to help bring about greater peace on this planet through less conflict over water resources.

"In each case the bores were successful, and the information supplied was accurate in regard to location, water quality and depth."

We specialize in finding water, even where others say “there is none.”

The name AquaterreX comes from the Latin, aqua (water) and French, terre (earth, land) which is a derivative of the Latin, terra, and “X” for exploration. Thus, AquaterreX encompasses water and land solutions for the planet. Since water is the basic requirement of any solution, our Deep Seated Water technology becomes the “Missing Piece” to an effective water strategy.
