FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions)

Q: Will my well free flow like a spring out of the ground?

A: It depends. Wells that are drilled into a confined aquifer access water that is under pressure. This pressure forces the water in the well to rise. The water may flow out at the surface, but not always. It depends on the well location and its surface elevation. If the well naturally free flows above land surface, it then meets the definition of an artesian well.

Q: Do I need a permit?

A: No permit is required for any wells to be drilled in Ontario. In some Townships however you will need to have a Drilling contractor fill out paperwork provided by the Township so that they can get a building permit. Also, in some Townships an Engineer is required for a Grouting Inspection. Once the Well is constructed, the Drilling Contractor must fill out a Well Record Form which is provided to the Drilling Contractor by the Ministry of the Environment.

Q: What setbacks does my well require?

A: The setback distance is 50 ft from the nearest source of Pollution ie: Septic System, Manure Pit, Oil Tank.

Q: How much room is required to drill my well?

A: Imagine a 30ft truck that is 8ft wide and is towing a 30ft boat that is 8ft wide, the well is drilled where the trailer hitch would be. Additional room is required on both sides of the rig and water truck for the access and for the drilling process.

Q: How long does it take to drill a well?

A: Well drilling completion times vary from a half day to three days or longer. Drilling time is affected by many factors including time to set up, difficult drilling formations and weather. All of these factors vary from site to site and well to well.

Q: Will I need water treatment?

A: It will depend on what the mineral content of the water is, whether or not you will need water treatment. You should have your water tested after the drilling is completed to determine if and what type of water treatment would be suitable for your particular case.

Q: How deep will I have to drill to find water?

A: This varies by location, on average wells can be from 100' to 300' or more.
