Becoming a water well driller

Tue, 28 Mar 2017 23:55:42 GMT

I live in North eastern Washington and have an opportunity to become a drillers assistant then over time become the driller. Just wondering if water well drilling can be a longtime career. The driller/owner is very skilled at what he does and would be a great person to work for. Just looking for a solid career change. Should I pursue or let the idea go.

I would say do it, I'm training to be a driller in south eastern Washington but it runs in my family so I'm pretty partial to this career. CDL and Welding will be a must at some point I'm sure you already know, sometimes it's really fun and sometimes it's really not. If you like being challenged and being outdoors go for it

Water wells may be dug simply to monitor water quality or to heat or cool, as well as to provide drinking water when treated. Drilling a well may be done in one of several ways, as described below, and there are things to consider before drilling a well. Drilling a well involves a higher initial cost than connecting to a public water supply, as well as risks of not finding enough water or water of sufficient quality and ongoing costs to pump the water and maintain the well. However, some water districts may make residents wait years before they can be connected to a public supply, thus making well drilling a viable option where there is enough groundwater at a reasonable depth.
