Fraser Valley Hydrogeology & Water Well Drilling

Understanding Fraser Valley Hydrogeology and how it affects water wells.  Water is essential for human life and it is increasingly becoming one of the worlds’ most important commodity. Despite the fact that 70% of the earth’s surface is covered in water, only about 1% of the total available water is readily suitable for human consumption.

According to the Government Department of Environment and Climate Change Canada, about 50% of water use is coming from residential households, while 35% is coming from industrial and commercial uses being the remaining 15% associated with leakage.

With many years of experience our local team provides high quality Fraser Valley hydrogeological services to organizations in the public and private sector, as well as homeowners.

Our main hydrogeological services in the Fraser Valley includes:

  • Local Water Well Drilling & Installation
  • Oil Sands Operation Department

Oil sands are a natural mixture of water, sand, clay and bitumen, originally found in underground deposits. The main characteristics of the oil bitumen is that it is generally too thick, heavy and viscous to flow or be pumped out of the oil sand mix without being diluted or heated, when exposed to room temperature.

Oil sands are present in different locations around the globe, such as the United States, Russia and Venezuela, but the largest and most developed deposit is located in Alberta, known as the Athabasca deposit.

According to the platform Canada´s Oils Sands, Alberta’s oil sands lie under 142,000 km2 of land, of which about 97% of the oil sands surface area are recoverable only by in situ (drilling) methods, which require very little surface land disturbance.

Fraser Valley Well Drilling

Fraser Valley Hydrogeological Services depends on dual rotary barber (DR-24) and Air Rotary (CSR-1000) drilling rigs for our local water well drilling within the Fraser Valley & throughout British Columbia.

Drilling services offered are the following, among others:

  • Mud Rotary Drilling
  • Dual Rotary Drilling
  • Air Rotary Drilling
  • Reverse Circulation Drilling
  • Production Coring
  • Surface Casings
  • Becker Hammer Drilling
  • Augering

Regarding water wells and Fraser Valley Hydrogeology services our expert team of drillers have installed many water wells throughout our history.

A drilled well consists of a ground borehole with the upper part being lined with casing, which allows to keep the borehole stable and also avoids surface contaminants from getting into the water supply. Drilled water wells are generally installed using a drilling rig, such as a top-head rotary or a cable tool drilling.

Advantages of Drilled Water Wells in the Fraser Valley

Underneath the casing, the lower part of the borehole acts as an intake letting the water entering the well.

In case the drilled well is not capable of producing water of certain quality, additional casing inside the original casing and grouting can be used. In case the water quality remains unsuitable, the well shall be sealed and abandoned. Casings are generally made of steel in the case of air rotary or cable tool drilling or plastic in the case of mud rotary wells.

Advantages of drilled water wells in the Fraser Valley: 

  • No de-watering required during the installation process
  • Very low maintenance
  • Quick and relatively easy to sink
  • Less lining required
  • Less susceptible to contamination than dug wells

Proper well development is critical to any well completion to maximize the efficiency of the well by rehabilitating the aquifer after the disturbance of the drilling action. Fine particles surrounding the well screen must be removed from the area to increase the permeability of the aquifer using air and surge methods with Local Water Well Pros development procedures.

In any drilling method, the permeability of the formation around the borehole is reduced. For example, in the cable-tool method, compaction and clay smearing occur. With wet-rotary drilling, fluid infiltrates the aquifer and when reverse circulation is used, water laden with fines often obstructs the formation as a vacuum effect occurs around the well drilling bit.

Water Well Screen Design

Water Well screen design and selection is, without question, one of the most important factors in producing an efficient well. The screen should be designed to serve two basic purposes; to permit unobstructed entry of water into the well, and to allow maximum flow to the formation for development procedures

Local Water Well Pros in the Fraser Valley depend on the right equipment and a team of specialists to provide the following groundwater and water well installation services:

  • 6” to 24” Diameter Water Wells
  • Dewatering Wells
  • Depressurizing Wells
  • Groundwater Monitoring Wells
  • Slope Indicators
  • Vibrating Wire Piezometers and Settlement Devices

We are able to install wells in any formation at remote locations utilizing our heliportable HT-500, HT-700 and our HT air compressors. For larger applications, our DR-24 Barber drills can install wells from 6” to 22” diameter and to depths of up to 1,000 feet.

HT stands for helicopter transportable. The HT series drill rigs are all modular and can be transported to remote locations via helicopter. The modular design also permits the machine to be easily switched and mounted on skids, truck or tracked carriers.
