Alleviating Drought: AquaterreX Locates Deep Seated Fresh Water in Texas

New Deep Seated Freshwater Source Discovered in Hidden Aquifer by the AquaterreX Team Using a Unique Combination of Advanced Technologies.

Valencia, CA September 26, 2022. As the U.S. Southwest grapples with drought and water contamination, AquaterreX, in partnership with non-profit Lawrence Anthony Earth Organization, located Deep Seated fresh water for a farm near the birthplace of the State of Texas in Washington County. Using a unique combination of advanced technology, the team located an undetected freshwater aquifer that yielded a well producing more than 400 gallons per minute.

Pollutants and agricultural run-off have been detected in waters throughout the region. Groundwater from nearby aquifers is being excessively overdrawn, diminishing supply in rural areas and transported to larger cities. One case in point was a 150-mile pipeline constructed to supply the city of San Antonio, Texas.

This impacts the natural course of groundwater and surface water – dependent ecosystems in the region –reducing water supplies for rural residents and farmers. Soil degradation is also indicative of unsustainable water and land management practices. Desertification is likewise a major environmental situation across Texas and the Southwest.

A unique combination of satellite data, proprietary software algorithms, and on-the-ground instrumentation enable AquaterreX to locate fresh groundwater with near-100% accuracy and extract it economically. The company’s theme is, “We find water where others say there is none.”

AquaterreX Chairman and CEO, James D’Arezzo, said, “The entire Southwest is dealing with historic drought. Our capabilities are helping to alleviate the drought problem by identifying supplemental sources of fresh water.” Read more about the Texas results in the Texas farm case study.

There is a Vast Ocean of Fresh Water Right Below Our Feet

A vast ocean of fresh water exists right below our feet. It can be tapped economically and quickly. Hydrogeologists and other experts have overlooked it due to assumptions made decades ago. However, with 21st-century technology, this vast ocean of water can be located and brought to the surface within weeks. The US National Groundwater Association estimates there are 6,000 years of freshwater supply in the upper two kilometers of the earth’s crust Nature Geoscience article. AquaterreX has developed the ability to locate and economically bring to the surface these previously untapped water resources.

Deep Seated Water – An Almost Unlimited, Alternative, and Clean Source

Deep Seated Water (DSW), is groundwater, typically sourced from deep aquifers that are located lower than shallow aquifers. Such deep aquifers are supplied not only from local catchment basins but also by subsurface inflows across basin boundaries. Deep Seated Water also encompasses water created at the mantle level of the Earth under extreme heat and pressure as confirmed by this recent report on mantle rain. Contamination does not occur in these deep water aquifers as modern pollution has not reached these deeper levels. And the best news is that this water is accessible and plentiful.

Deep Seated Water – The Missing Piece

Deep Seated Water is the Missing Piece that can solve the water crisis puzzle – contamination, drought, scarcity. Many water strategies focus on conservation, rather than additional supply. Other solutions such as desalination and wastewater treatment are potential answers for some, but they also come with trade-offs such as high cost, high energy usage, long planning periods, and toxic waste. Deep Seated Water is located almost everywhere on the planet, and it can be added to the mix of solutions as a supplemental freshwater source that is not subject to contamination, is fast and easy to implement, and is economical and scalable. And, tapping Deep Seated Water allows both surface water and shallow aquifer sources to recharge, making the total system more environmentally sustainable.

We Can Solve the Water Problem

There is no question that we are facing freshwater challenges around the world. It is time to consider all of the alternatives and solutions at our disposal. Science and technology are advancing to the point where we can make a difference quickly, if we just resolve to do it.

About AquaterreX

AquaterreX ( is a global environmental services organization with a mission to broadly implement effective water and food security solutions. 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.

The company possesses proprietary technology to locate Deep Seated Water, which is fresh water situated below the shallow groundwater that supplies the majority of fresh water on the planet. This vast new source of water can help solve the water crisis facing billions of people.

AquaterreX acquired the technology in an exclusive licensing agreement with the non-profit Lawrence Anthony Earth Organization in 2018. Since then, a series of enhancements have been made to further improve the accuracy and capability of the technology. AquaterreX continues to partner with The Earth Organization and support its humanitarian efforts to bring effective resolution to environmental issues.

AquaterreX offers a free analysis to municipalities, farms, ranches, and organizations experiencing water deficiencies. Request an Analysis.
