Well Drilling Technologies

Classroom Event
  • Length: 5 days

This course covers all aspects of providing a safe, potable water supply in remote locations. Students will learn drilling techniques utilizing a Mud Rotary Drill—and will actually locate an aquifer on our property; drill, ream and case the borehole, and install a hand pump. Although rotary drilling will be the primary focus of the course, students will also learn to manually drill with simple, less expensive, percussion methods and hand augers. Graduates of the course will find they are not only more adept at purchasing the right well-drilling equipment, but are capable of supervising proper well construction by contracted firms.
