At Brotcke Well & Pump, we won’t just help you design and maintain your water rehabilitation system, we’ll build it too. A surprising amount of knowledge goes into knowing where and how to drill for the purpose of building a well, and hopefully you’ll use a water supply system servicer that knows what they’re doing when it comes to geotechnical drilling like we do.
What is it?
Geotechnical drilling refers to any time that one drills into the earth for the purpose of properly creating a structure in that spot. It does not only consist of the drilling aspect of the process, but also of the testing of soil and/or rock that surrounds the site to ensure maximum safety and stability.
Why use it?
When building a structure as vital to your community as a water rehabilitation system, it’s important to acknowledge that though your well should certainly look presentable above ground, what’s going on below the surface is equally as important. Understanding the area surrounding your water supply system is extremely necessary for knowing where and how you can build, as well as if you’re even starting out in the right place.
What does it have to do with water?
Besides the fact that geotechnical drilling allows you more knowledge about soil stability and classification, it can also help determine groundwater depth. If your looking to build a well that uses groundwater as its source, then one of, if not the most important factor in building your well is determining how deep it should go. Geotechnical drilling allows us to get the specifics on how to build your water supply system.
Geotechnical drilling is just one of the many things that we do at Brotcke Well & Pump, but it’s definitely one of the most important. Understanding your water system inside out and top to bottom is our job as your professional water rehabilitation service providers, and it’s what we do best.
