Shallow Well Construction
Well construction is one of the most common projects DCA Drilling oversees. In some cases, only a shallow well is necessary to bring water to one’s property. These wells are typically no more than 10- to 20-feet deep and roughly six feet in diameter, though exact dimensions can vary from project to project depending on the location of the water table. These wells are usually fitted with hand-powered pumps in order to access the water.
Our expertly-trained employees can use a number of methods to complete the shallow well construction process. Three of the main methods for constructing these wells include:
- Lining the well with normal bricks: It’s important that these bricks have tiny holes in them and are penetrable so water can pass through. Lining the well with non-permeable bricks will prevent the well from serving its main purpose.
- Lining the well with interlocking blocks: If the diameter of the well is not circular, pillars can provide additional support throughout the well.
- Lining the well with wired blocks: The first step in this process is to make a cutting ring. The wired reinforcement should be placed into the trench — able to sink down — and then the mortar is poured in around the reinforcement. Digging should be done inside the well in order for the sinking process to be effective.
