RESIDENTIAL & COMMERCIAL WELL DRILLING, Deepening, Decommissioning, Irrigation, and Geothermal. Artesian, bedrock wells for homes and businesses.

  • Wells for drinking water are regulated to some degree in every state. In Massachusetts, wells are regulated by your local Board of Health. There are a few state laws overseeing some aspects of well drilling, as well. Most importantly, Massachusetts law requires all wells must be drilled or dug by a Registered Well Driller. Skillings & Sons is certified to drill wells in both Massachusetts and New Hampshire, and has more than 250 years of experience in the field. Here we outline some of the important information you will need to know before moving forward with any well drilling project in Massachusetts.

  • Running out of well water can be devastating for a homeowner. Drilling a new well to replace a well that’s run dry can be expensive, but isn’t always necessary. There are some ways you increase the flow of water from your well, even if you are experiencing low water levels.

  • While hydrofracking is a process that was originally developed by the oil and gas industry, it is much different than “hydraulic fracturing,” used in drilling today. Hydrofracking also known as hydrofracturing, is a safe and chemical-free method for increasing the flow of water within bedrock deep below the ground.

  • Wells have been used ever since human civilization stopped migrating to develop settlements and needed safe drinking water that was close to their homes.

We drill for new home construction, replacement wells for existing homes, commercial buildings and housing developments. We also install residential and commercial geothermal wells and irrigation wells. In most cases it takes one day to drill a well and the pump is usually installed the next day.
