Arsenic Information

We are the leaders in Arsenic Well Construction, why trust anyone else. When the DNR was finding rising levels of Arsenic throughout Outagamie and Winnebago counties we worked hand and hand with the DNR to find solutions.

A summary of the solutions are:

  1. Proper cleaning of drilling fluids- ensures keeping mud weights down, not dragging Arsenic laden materials down to deeper depths and sets the stage for a proper grout job.
  2. Braden-head grouting techniques- ensures a perfect envelope of Cement Grout protecting your well from leaching Arsenic laden water into your well over time.
  3. Develop with air- this cleans the well properly and does not adversely effect the well as long as the drill string is 60 feet above the bottom of the casing.

    Please note this size of the drilling mess above. This mess is essential to fully clean the borehole and ensure the entire annulus of the well is grouted properly. Cleaning the borehole properly is your best insurance for the lowest Arsenic Levels possible now and into the future.
