WEST TEXAS - The continuing drought is putting pressure on west Texans to seek alternative sources of water but deciding on a solution can be a daunting task. That's the expertise of the Water Quest Incorporated team. Water Quest has been in operation for 6 months now and they've already been extremely successful in providing water project aid. They say mainly because they're a non-profit.
It's a useful service and it's available for all west Texans.
"Basically a free consultation a free hydro-geologic evaluation of any potential projects that they may wish to consider," said Darrell Peckham, Hydro-Geologist, Water Quest, Inc.

From scientific data for large-scale water projects to answering simple conservation questions, Water Quest is here for you and most importantly, the service is free of charge.
"We are free to the Permian Basin which includes everybody, Water Quest is really a very unique situation in that it is a nonprofit assisting looking for water supplies," said Peckham.
Peckham says because water quest is a non-profit it removes any financial barriers and agendas.
