Abandoned Water Well Decommissioning Demonstration


Unfortunately, it is very common for rural land owners to either neglect or improperly cover their unused water wells. These wells may expose groundwater to potentially irrecoverable contamination, pose a physical hazard to people, livestock and farm machinery, and may contribute to a legal liability and a reduction in property value. We are now pleased to present this video of a live demonstration we hosted last month which outlines the basic process for decommissioning large diameter bored wells.
