Types of Water Wells

There are a lot of factors involved in the drilling of a water well. Whether it is a deep well or a shallow well, it is a complex and difficult process that

should only be attempted by a licensed professionals with the right equipment and ample experience. Drill rods can weigh several tons, different types of geological formations require different types of drill bits, many other factors contribute. An inexperienced driller can set your project back time and time again. Well diameters range from 1″ to 30″ and to depths of 1500 feet.

There are four basic types of water wells that we drill:

Well Abandonment

We also provided well abandonment/plugging services. To properly and legally abandon a water well it must be done by a licensed water well contractor.
