We've been drilling wells for homes and cottages since 1915, and we know how important water is to you, your family and friends. We take the utmost care in constructing or rehabilitating your well to ensure clean water is always available when you need it. We offer a variety of casing options, such as Steel, heavy wall Steel, Stainless Steel and PVC. Wells are completed in various formations, such as Sand, Gravel and fractured bedrock. Ask us what to expect at your location.
Serving - Stratford, Kitchener-Waterloo-Cambridge, Listowel, London, Woodstock and Surrounding Areas
Farms and Agricultural based businesses make up a large part of our work. Whether its Poultry, Pork, Beef, Goat, Sheep or one of the many types of Dairy or spraying operations, we are there to help.
In many cases the Water needs of a farming operation are directly tied to its profits!
For example - Milk is composed of nearly 87% water. An adequate supply of quality water for dairy cattle is extremely important. Farmers typically provide cows with free access to fresh water at all times. The water requirements of lactating cows are closely related to milk production!
Our experience can help you plan for the future, whether its a single well or large multi-well system. Ask us how we can help to maximize your Production.
Throughout Ontario Irrigation has become a necessity for some and a huge benefit for others. Over the decades we have been involved with some of the largest systems in use for Agriculture, Golf & Sod.
Open Loop Geothermal / Cooling wells often require specialized construction, we have been involved with some of the largest and most sophisticated systems in Ontario. Standing Column Wells allow Geo-exchange by extensive direct contact with the earths geology. We have drilled to Depths beyond 1150' to access this type of energy, our knowledge and experience will ensure you make the best of your areas underground resources.
If needed we work closely with experienced Consultants & Hydrogeologists to get the design, permitting and paperwork in place promptly for your Project.
Many Municipalities rely on Groundwater to provide safe drinking water for their communities, we've had the opportunity to work with a vast number over the years. Our experience and equipment has taken us to Borehole diameters of up to 43", and single well pumping rates of 3000 gallons per minute. Dewatering and Near-Zero Tolerance Alignment Holes as well as Freeze holes for Mineshafts have kept us ahead of the curve.
We can offer complete services including Pumping Tests, Design, Consulting, Geophysics, Reporting, Rehabilitation & Downhole Video Inspections among others. Our experience has given us the flexibility to offer a wide variety of well drilling and related applications.
Over the decades we have been involved with a vast selection of Over-drilling / Wash-over projects for both Re-Casing and Decommissioning existing wells & boreholes, or removing stuck / lost tooling for other contractors. The tooling required for these projects is often not readily available commercially and requires fabrication. We have the in house capabilities to custom design and fabricate whatever your project requires.
Over time there are various factors which can cause a well to decrease in its ability to provide water at the flow rates required. We provide rehabilitation services where possible, to get your well producing again. This may include a simple disinfection or more advanced efforts requiring airlifting or chemical descaling.

A Well Owner is responsible for plugging and sealing an abandoned well, however most owners cannot accomplish this to MOECP standards without a licensed Contractors help.
We offer cost effective Decommissioning services for all types of wells, whether its a small diameter monitoring well, private or municipal well or even Geothermal Holes. Wells or Boreholes might need to be decommissioned for various reasons. They might be in an inconvenient location, corroded or unused and from time to time even be ordered decommissioned by municipal water providers or other Authorities. We have been involved with some of the most technically challenging Decommissioning projects in Ontario in conjunction with the MOECP and MNR. Contact us to discuss your needs.
Drilled wells in Ontario find water in 2 main ways, either by drilling into and exposing fractures in the Bedrock or by placing a well screen adjacent to Sand or Gravel formations which bear water.
We have over 100 years experience in obtaining water from both types of wells.
The general expectations for your area can usually be obtained from our database or from well records kept by the Ministry of the Environment (see our links page for access).
Bedrock wells typically have sealed casing extending into the top of the bedrock and the lower portion of the well is "open hole" to allow water to enter the well. Some wells are Artesian meaning the water rises above the source and sometimes even flows over at the surface. In some areas bedrock wells are not artesian and the water level is sometimes 100's of feet below ground surface.
Sand or Gravel wells usually have a well screen installed & developed to allow water to flow into the well without carrying sand and silt with it, they typically have slots sizes from 0.004" up to 0.150" and are made of stainless steel.
