The American Ground Water Trust recommends that a written contract be executed prior to the start of any well drilling. This will give you an itemized list of expected costs. Cushing & Sons will inspect your site and prepare a printed agreement form that will reduce the chance for misunderstandings by identifying liabilities, responsibilities and uncertanties. Far too many homeowners have paid dearly for using amateurs or part-time, non-specialists for water well and pump installation work. Cushing & Sons is fully licensed, certified and insured for all the work we do. The AGWT cautions homeowners against high pressure sales or scare tactics and "bonus" offers to get your business.
Property owners can become involved in litigation involving uninsured water well drillers. If an employee of an uninsured contractor is injured on your premises, you may be responsible for any resultant injuries or disabilities. In addition, you probably have no protection in the event of damage to your property or the property of others by the drilling company or pump installer during the course of the work.
