Monitor Well Installation

Drilling Engineers installs, repairs and abandons wells. The company’s CME 55’s and 75’s as well as the Geoprobe 7822DT’s direct-push capabilities provides for efficient and quick installation of monitoring and remedial wells in softer lithographies. For harder subsurfaces, the company uses hollow-stem auger drills to create the borehole for well installation.

Equipment for Well Installation

The company’s equipment for well installation includes:

  • Hollow Stem Augers — in diameters 3.25″, 4.25″, 6.25″, 8.25″ and 10.25″
  • Injection Pumps
  • Test Pumps in 2” diameter, capable of moving 70 to 220 gallons per minute
  • Submersible pumps in 2” and 4” diameters
  • Packers in diameters from 3” to 6”
  • 3” diameter flowmeters, capable of measuring up to 250 gallons per minute
