Hit a Rock Formation? No Problem.

Hard Rock Well Drilling Contractors

What is a hard rock well: During the drilling and installation of most wells a driller is going through various formations of gravel, clay, soft rock, and sand. Occassionally, well drillers will run into a hard rock formation such as granite, that requires special bits, drill rigs, and drilling techniques. Regardless of the final water well application, a hard rock formation can make things very difficult for the driller and the customer. 

Why is it important: Drillers without the proper equipment risk losing a bit head in the hole and having to spend time fishing or backtracking from the well while customers are stuck footing the bill for lost time and damaged equipment.

How our drilling contractors help: Let our hard rock drilling experts use their 35+ years of experience and state-of-the-art equipment to increase the footage drilled and decrease the cost per foot on your next hard rock well drilling project. Whether your project is in Minnesota, North Dakota, South Dakota, Iowa, or Wisconsin you can be assured we have the expertise and equipment to Get the Job Done Right the First Time.
