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.
