Well Development

The drilling process often uses specially formulated drilling mud to help carry the drilled pieces to the surface. Most drilling also creates fine ground rock material. All fine particles need to be removed from a well in order that it may efficiently produce water. The process of removing fine particles is called "well development". We do this by using compressed air to agitate and remove water in the well until it runs relatively free of turbidity.

See What Our Customers Are Saying About Us

I recently had a bad experience with a well issue for a bank owned property. It was constant confusion, missed and rescheduled appointments and an all-around bad experience. So, I was worried about who to call with our own well because of that. My friend recommended me to Cushing and Sons and am glad I called you too install our new well.
