BC Well Drilling and Well Closures

Environmental/monitoring wells, mining, open loop geothermal, ground rods, irrigation wells etc. all are very important drilling projects for different reasons. In fact, in today’s day-and-age, they are indispensable. However, carrying out, or for that matter, even beginning operations that require the use of these projects is not possible without drilling services.

We, at J.R. Drilling Central Limited Partnership, provide good-quality commercial drilling services to our customers. All the drilling equipment we use is safe and of good quality. In fact, all of our drilling equipment is of the latest model and make. This allows us to provide you with efficient, speedy and timely drilling solutions. We constantly put in efforts to keep ourselves updated to make sure that you get only the best, the latest and the most versatile commercial drilling services.


Environmental/Monitoring Wells

The Foremost Dual Rotary Drills are the most effective tools on the market for environmental drilling. Our supporting pipe truck has a built-in flatbed water tank that holds 1,600 gallons of water. When combined with the water tank, our geo-loop grout pump unit gives us 1200 gallons of water available for monitoring well installation.

We have worked with Fortis and BC Hydro on their groundwater resistivity testing by installing ground rods at their substation sites across BC.

Irrigation Wells

We drill irrigation wells ranging from 6” diameter all the way to 12” diameter for all levels of irrigation. Whether you need to water a small acreage for home use or irrigate hundreds of acres and require 1500 gallons per minute, we have done it all, so give us a call.

 Above Ground Sump & Pump

We have developed many uses for the above ground sump and pump system. They include:
