What is a Drilled Water Well?
A drilled water well consists of a hole bored into the ground by a drill rig. The top section of the well is lined with a steel pipe referred to as a casing. The casing prevents the collapse of the walls of the well and prevents contaminants from entering the water supply.
You deserve a water supply that you can count on. GWW is known for standing behind its systems and its people with the best service and guarantees. Our water systems are constructed to meet the highest industry standards to assure you of a safe and dependable supply of water.
We guarantee that the well casing in residential bedrock wells is tightly sealed into the bedrock and that no surface water will pass through the seal into the well. If at any time, the casing seal fails for any reason other than impact or movement by a person or object, Goodwin Well & Water will repair the well free of charge.
We will provide “same day” emergency repair service to any GWW residential customer who is out of water and for whom the company has installed a complete water system, including both well and pump system. “Same day” service is defined as service rendered the same calendar day – before 7 pm – that Goodwin Well & Water is contacted by a customer. The customer will be charged overtime rates for “same day” service. If GWW fails to provide “same day” service, the company will provide the labor for the service call at no charge. If a customer decides he/she would like GWW to provide service the following day at regular service rates, GWW will extend its warranty to the following work day.
The majority of residential water supply wells in Maine are bedrock wells that tap ground water aquifers in fractured bedrock formations. These wells are relatively unaffected by drought and, when properly constructed, provide maximum protection from surface contaminants. The most important consideration in the construction of a bedrock well is to make sure that the driller installs an adequate amount of casing into bedrock, with a permanent casing seal, to prevent surface water from entering the well resulting in potential contamination. At Goodwin Well & Water, we are so confident about the quality of our casing seals that we warranty that no surface water will pass through the seal into the well. If at any time in the future, the casing seal fails for any reason other than impact or movement by a person or object, we will repair the well free of charge.
Some areas in Maine are covered by a sand and gravel aquifer. If you are in one of these locations, an excellent alternative to a bedrock well may be a gravel well. These wells are constructed by drilling down and installing a stainless steel well screen into the water-saturated sand or gravel. Sand and gravel wells can provide very high yields of excellent quality water at less expense than many bedrock wells.
