Dug Well Excavation and Installation
A Relic That's Been All but Replaced by Artesian Well Drilling
A dug well used to be the norm for properties in New Hampshire, Maine, and Massachusetts. This was before high tech drilling equipment (like ours) became more common and reasonably priced. Nowadays dug wells are considered relics, but in some rare cases a dug well might be better choice. The problem with dug wells is that they are shallower and are more vulnerable to surface contamination, but if they are done right, are in a safe location, and are properly outfitted, then they can produce a decent amount of water. There's a reason why dug wells are not very popular anymore, so let us come out and give you an estimate on our other well drilling services.
