What is a trial well for?
Drilling a trial well at a suitable location to determine the presence of an aquifer (underground water source), its capacity and water table levels.
Results from the trial well will determine:
- Type of overburden and bedrock encountered e.g. clay, gravel, limestone, granite
- Where we encounter inflows of water
- Diameter of Production well if required
- Estimated yield of well
- Water table level
- If further trial wells are required
A trial well is essential first step to making a full production well, these trials allows to gather the necessary data to design the best production well for your site needs, ensuring high, consistent quality water and efficient well development
