Drilling & Probing
WJ has extensive experience of both installing boreholes for dewatering & groundwater control, pumping tests, water supply and ground-source energy projects and probing for tunnels, cross passages and shafts projects
Whether its wells for a dewatering scheme, an array of wells for a pumping test or a simple water supply well, drilling is a necessary requirement for most groundwater control and management schemes. In most cases our drilling services falls into two distinct categories:
Well Drilling; Wells are constructed for a variety of reasons, but in all cases they need to be well designed in terms of location, depth, performance and final application.
Probe Drilling: Probe drilling is generally used in the construction of tunnels, cross passages and shafts to test ground conditions and water pressures ahead.
