Drilled Water Wells in Nova Scotia

Why Choose an Artesian Well ?

When your house cannot be connected to city water, having access to water becomes a vital concern. The client usually has the choice between an Artesian Well, Cistern or a Surface Well. The artesian well is bored using a drilling rig. This well is narrow, usually more than 15 meters deep and draws from ground water not impacted by surface water contaminants. The surface well however, is shallow and wide. It is usually dug using a backhoe and is fed by surface water which is more prone to contaminations and quality fluctuations.

An artesian well:

  • Provides a clean, stable and reliable source of water all year long.
  • Increases real estate value for residential properties
  • Has low contamination risk
  • Has low maintenance
