Drilled well

Grouting and Well Seal

  • Prevents contaminants to enter the aquifer
  • Ontario regulations minimum of 3M (~10ft) of sealing material (i.e.: Grout) and minimum size of the borehole diameter 5cm greater than the casing
  • Grouting material:
    • Sodium bentonite
    • Concrete
    • Cement grout
  • Extend well casing minimum of ~16’’-18’’ and slope ground away from wellhead
  • Vented, Vermin-proof well cap (cover) installed

After water runs chlorine free, return all equipment to service position (water softeners, well cover, etc.).

Well Upgrades

  • Older wells were not finished above ground level and often were finished in a pit constructed below the frost line or buried
  • Risk of contamination!
  • We can fix this problem by extending the casing above ground as per regulation 
  • The installation of a pit-less adapter will then also make it easier to access your pump and lines for service

Well Location


  • Septic tank:
    • 30M (~100ft) from any non-watertight wastewater system
    • Sealed well that complies with standards 15M (~50ft) from non-watertight wastewater system
    • 15m from a watertight wastewater system
  • Farming:
    • 30M (~100ft) from raising facility or animal waste storage *Extended to 75m (~245ft) from winter enclosure for beef cattle
  • Must be a certain distance from building or any other source of contamination
