Welcome  - from President Jim McClain, 

McClain's Shallow Wells, Savannah, GA


As President of GaGwP this year, I want to welcome you to our website and thank you for your interest in GaGwP and well drilling in Georgia.

I hope you will find this website both interesting and informative.

GaGwP is the only association of professional well drillers  and suppliers in the State of Georgia and we are extremely proud of our many accomplishments over the years.

We had a very successful 2016 Georgia Well Show and Exhibit on Sept. 16-17 in Savannah Georgia where over 300 people attended.  Our Well Show in 2017 will be Sept. 29-30 and we are expecting an even better show this year.  Be sure to put this on your calendar today!

CLICK HERE for pictures of the Well Show.

If you are in any way connected to the well drilling industry in Georgia, this show is a must for you.  Be sure to plan to attend this year!

We are also having a Continuing Education Seminar on May 4, in Macon.  Click on the "Upcoming Events" in the column on the right for details or CLICK HERE for a copy you may print out.  We want to especially thank our sponsors who make this seminar possible.  They are:

CMC Supply,  DSI,  Franklin Electric,  Preferred Pump,

and Noland Company

Thanks again for your interest and we look forward to receiving any input you might want to send. I hope you will contact us, if we might assist you in any way.

$73,800 Awarded

GAGwP has awarded $73,800 in scholarships since our inception.

This last year 4 individuals were each awarded $1,500.

They were:

  • Rhett Greene, Greene Water Wells; 
  • Kenyon Scott Ward, D.W. Water Systems; 
  • Kaylee Marlow, CMC Supply;
  • Rahn Emily, Breland Well Drilling. 

These funds come from the generous contributions from our supplier members which are auctioned off at our Annual Well Show.  Without the generous support of the suppliers and the members who purchase these items, the scholarships would not be possible.  
Be sure to thank our suppliers who contribute to this effort!

Networking and Learning

What is GAGwP?

The Georgia Association of Groundwater Professionals (GaGwP) is a state-wide, non profit trade association which represents contractors who are engaged in the design, sales, installation, maintenance, service and repair of water wells and irrigation systems for residential, agricultural, mining, commercial, industrial and institutional customers. These are professionals whose efforts result in supplying twenty one percent (21%) of all of Georgia's water needs and help manage our groundwater resources which will play an ever increasingly important role in implementing a long-term comprehensive plan to improve Georgia's ecosystmes, water supply and water management.
