Well & Water Types Around Omemee, Peterborough & Kawarthas

If you need a well for your home, farm, or business in the Omemee, Peterborough, or Kawarthas areas, contact Herb Lang Well Drilling Ltd. We’ve been drilling wells and accessing groundwater in the area for nearly 40 years.

Drilled Wells

There are three main types of wells: driven, dug, and drilled. Drilled wells are the most common type of well in Canada, and they are the type of well we create. Our drilled wells:

  • are constructed by either a cable tool (percussion) or rotary-drilling machines

  • can be drilled more than 1,000 feet deep

  • include casing and screening to prevent the inflow of sediment and well collapse

  • are sealed with grouting material of either neat cement or bentonite clay around the casing to prevent contamination from surface water
