Water Well Drilling Services For Municipalities
We provide water well drilling services for a variety of applications:
- Test holes, tests wells / water quality collection
- Geological data collection and investigative services
- Production wells
- Monitoring wells
- Extraction and dewatering wells
- Pollution abatement
- Irrigation Wells
- Injection and ASR Wells
We utilize the latest water well drilling technologies and equipment including:
- Rotary Drilling
This is the most common method of drilling test wells and small diameter production wells due to its drilling speed and efficiency. Boreholes up to 24" are possible using either engineered drilling fluids, water or air to clean the cuttings from the hole. This methodology provides an excellent approach to drilling in consolidated rock formations like limestone and sandstone.
- Cable Tool Drilling
Since no drilling fluid or circulation pit is required, cable tool well drilling is often selected for environmental remediation recovery wells and nested monitoring wells. Formation sampling accuracy is excellent, allowing for precise well screen selection. This method is very effective for shallow unconsolidated water supply wells, as well as well reconstruction services.
- Reverse Circulation Drilling
In sand and gravel unconsolidated formations, reverse circulation drilling is an effective choice for advancing large diameter boreholes (up to 48") for high capacity well construction. Only clear water is used during the drilling process, avoiding the use of drilling muds that can plug the formation and cause extensive development. This method provides highly accurate formation sampling which ensures proper screen and gravel selection.
