Water Services

If it's water you want,
it's McNeill you need!

 

Accessing water is easy with our turn-key solutions. We drill to achieve the best available bore and then test aquifer to the highest possible standard the ground formation will allow.




Contact McNeill for the fleet with the largest & deepest capacity, capable of drilling on New Zealand roads.

Water Bores

 


We drill, design and construct bores for:

  • domestic clients
  • irrigation
  • lifestyle blocks
  • farm supply
  • town supply.

Drilled wells with electric pumps are used all throughout the world and will typically range from three to 300 metres deep.

Our drilling machines use a segmented, heavy walled, steel drilling string, made up of six-metre sections. The drill rods are threaded together with a drill bit or another drilling device at the cutting face.



Air and/or water is used as a circulation medium to discharge cuttings and clear the drill bit face during the drilling.

Our drilling machines install a steel casing into the bore in unison with the drilling of the actual bore hole.

We offer a no obligation, onsite quote to suit your requirements. This service includes drilling, equipment, materials casing and labour.

We can arrange or supply related items such as:

  • removal and disposing of drilling/bore waste
  • submersible pumps
  • storage tanks or systems for water
  • electrical installation of the pumping system.

Aquifer Testing
and Test Pumping

 

An aquifer (or pumping) test  is conducted to evaluate an aquifer. This is done by stimulating it through constant pumping and by observing the response/drawdown in observation wells. Aquifer testing is a common tool used by hydrogeologists to characterise a system of aquifers, aquitards and flow system boundaries.

Aquifer tests are necessary for both conceptual numerical modelling and water take consents over five litres per second.




According to the test types completed in the field, we produce raw data for analyses mentioned below:

  • Boundary conditions: determination of the boundary conditions affecting aquifer flow dynamics near to the well, by applying derivative analysis to the pumping test data and analysing the physical processes occured during the test
  • Well productivity: determination of the sustainable discharge rate of the drilled water wells
  • Hydraulic parameters: estimation of the aquifer conductivity and storativity.
