Dry conditions leading to demand for deep water bo

The drills in action.

The extremely dry conditions which have been experienced across the North Island have led to a growing demand for deep water bores.

Ryk Hermsen, one of the Project Managers at Barham United Welldrillers (2021) Ltd, says historical droughts have adversely affected the volume and quality of water in shallow bores.

“As a result, our team (who are renowned for well drilling and environmental services) are increasingly summoned to create deep water bores for a variety of purposes - domestic, commercial, and rural.

“Our approach is methodical. We follow a standard approach for all well-drilling enquiries starting with an indepth knowledge of the intended use of the water and location. We then undertake extensive research which includes such things as what drilling has occurred in the region, existence of underground aquifiers etc. “

Ryk says each project is customised.

“We recently worked with a dairy farmer requiring a 10’’ bore 120m deep for center pivot irrigation, and for an orchard where we constructed a 10” bore 170m deep. In both cases, the outcome delighted the clients as the bores delivered the necessary volume and quality of water.

“The success of these projects underscores the necessity for adaptation to environmental conditions, the importance of comprehensive planning and research in drilling ventures, and the tailored approach taken by Barham United Welldrillers to ensure dependable water sources for their clientele.”
