Moses Drilling Company was contracted to do a geothermal test bore for the future home of Lexington Fire Station #2. We drilled a 355′ deep well in about 2 hours. A 1″ loop was installed into the well and then backfilled with #9 stone with a 25′ bentonite cap to prevent surface contamination from entering […]
Moses Drilling was contracted by Shield Environmental & Associates to abandon a water well. There had previously been a gas station on this site and the underground tanks had leaked. After several years of clean up monitoring the ground for remaining contaminants, the state required the water well to be abandoned to further protect the […]
Transylvania College is adding new student dorms and installing an energy efficient geothermal system. The students are really going to enjoy their stay at Transy with the new dorms and especially the geothermal heat and air units! On this project, we drilled a 300′ geothermal test well, backfilled the well with thermally enhanced bentonite grout […]
This was a project for the Council of State Governments building renovation. We initially drilled (2) 300′ geothermal test wells and grouted the wells with thermally enhanced bentonite grout. We also performed a thermal conductivity test on one of the wells. A little bit later, we drilled the remainder of the well field, which consisted […]
We drilled (2) 300′ geothermal test wells for Commercial Bank in West Liberty, Ky. The holes were grouted with a thermally enhanced bentonite grout and a thermal conductivity test was performed on one of the wells.
