Well Drilling

Project Dewatering Limited typically drills wells for dewatering systems, pumping tests, water supply, ground source energy and groundwater remediation. Through our long-standing relationships with our partner companies, we have access to a wide variety of drilling equipment and techniques to suit all ground conditions. We commonly use cable percussion drilling, rotary cased and open-hole methods and, where appropriate, auger drilling. Plant and machinery are well-maintained and complies with the latest Health and Safety requirements.

We will assess the specific ground conditions that we expect to encounter and determine suitable drilling methodology to ensure both quick progress and a high-quality finished installation. We insist on using drilling techniques that optimise well efficiency and yield, and closely monitor drilling processes to ensure that the installation of well screens and grouted-casings are carried out to the highest standard.

Drilling projects range from shallow wellpoints to large diameter deep water supply wells.

Following drilling, well development is carried out to maximise yield and eliminate fines in the discharge, ensuring pumping of clear groundwater. This usually involves development by airlift techniques, but for chalk wells could include treatment by acidisation.
