Water Projects

Our well designs incorporate many features with one common goal — provide a reliable and long-term water source. A water well is simple in concept, but requires sophisticated attention to design details and operation to be successful in the long run.

Key Issue

Use turnkey project experience to design and install reliable and low maintenance wells.
We’ve designed wells as deep as 1,200 feet for a public water system, and we have designed and installed numerous other wells for industrial uses, contaminated groundwater plume control, groundwater injection, and in-situ groundwater remediation. Well casings as large as 16-inches in diameter have been used to complete the wells.

We’ve designed wells to be installed by various technologies including hollow-stem auger, turned casing, vibratory-sonic, diamond core, and mud rotary (direct, indirect, and flooded reverse methods). The specific drilling technology is chosen based on geology, well size and depth, and the well’s ultimate purpose.

Our engineered pump systems for wells include down-hole submersible pumps and vertical-turbine pumps, with a range of horsepower up to 250 hp. Our wells have been used to extract groundwater from aquifers with flow rates up to 1,000 gpm from one well.

To accommodate Client’s needs, we’ve designed well pump controls from simple capacitor start systems to sophisticated computer-controlled variable frequency drives. A variable frequency drive pump has many advantages including:

Saving overall power costs by adjusting the frequency, not the current going to the pump motor.

Precisely controlled extraction rates based on user needs (important when extraction is required but water demand varies).

Providing soft-starts and soft-stops to the pump motor. This reduces overall power costs, increase motor life, and eliminates downstream water.
