The water well market is distinct from other drilling industries, and no other publication can serve you as well as Water Well Journal® — published by the authoritative association in the groundwater field. Drillers come to WWJ for information about water wells — not oil and gas, construction, mining, or the environment. And for more than 70 years WWJ has been recognized as the leading industry resource for business owners and decision-makers in the water well industry.
