Water Well Abandoning Project

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 underground water aquifers. We grouted the water well with a bentonite grout and plugged the well from the bottom to the top with a 30% solids mixture. The casing was then removed per the state requirements and covered the remaining few inches of what had settled with native clays. Another successful project in the books!
