Artesian Well Drilling
New Wells, Replacement Wells, Repair and Maintenance; We Do It All!
Artesian well drilling requires the proper equipment and experience, since most wells in New Hampshire and Vermont range between 100 and 500 feet deep. Artesian wells take their water from fractures in bedrock, which are fed from the water table in the overlaying soils. Capital Well uses the air drilling process to achieve these depths and reach adequate water-bearing fractures.
During the artesian well drilling process, once the drill reaches bedrock, tubular steel casing (tipped with a steel “drive shoe”) is installed to prevent contaminants from mixing with the water supply. The amount of casing needed varies based on the geography of each particular location. However, the minimum casing used would be forty feet. Some casings also require grout, which is an additional seal using cement bentonite. The need for grouting is also based on geography.
After the well has been drilled, a well cap will be placed on the top of the casing to prevent debris from entering the well water. The entire artesian well drilling process typically takes one to two days.
