Fractured bedrock can be a good source of ground water that can be used for irrigation and drinking. If you want to install a well in bedrock, you can contact the local environmental department or any other professional construction body that can aid you with the process. You can get a list of drillers near your area from the environmental department and get well drilling for water services according to your budget.
The most common well drilling for water method used for drilling bedrock is mud rotatory system. The mud rotatory method can drill through the covering soil and into the bedrock without much difficulty. By using proper materials and installation technique you can install a sediment free, high-yield water well. Although your water well drilling company will do everything to dig up the well, knowing little basics about the procedure yourself is a good idea. The following information can be useful to you if you are digging water well through bedrock.
Place the rotatory drill at the preferred location of the water well. Set up the mud pan and attach the drill rods. Put the remaining parts on sawhorses or close to the rig on the ground so that they stay clean. Attach more drill rods to your drill and continue the procedure until you reach the top part of the bedrock. At this time, drillers will case the borehole or continue to drill the bedrock before the casing is installed. The local well drilling for water construction requirements and the type of soil located above the well will decide if the drillers need to continue drilling the bedrock before installing a case for the borehole.
The borehole casing should be solid and its diameter should be smaller than the hole by just 1 or 2 inches. Pump in grout in the space between the borehole and the casing. Some well drilling for water drillers install gravel in the space within 20 feet of the land surface before the grout is injected. The grout is then allowed to cue before continuing the drilling procedure.
Drill into the bedrock by lowering the drill though the casing. Continue drilling until you get fractures in the rock with enough yields to sustain water usage requirements of the property. Install a well cover or a well cap so that the casing is protected from contamination and damage. Many varieties of covers are available that serve different purposes like box covers, vault, upright covers and flush-mount covers. You can ask well drilling for water drillers on what type of cover will be most suitable for your well before using it.
