With over 75 years of combined experience in the industry, we’ve been handling all your well drilling service needs. Before attempting to have a well drilled, you should find out as much information as possible about the area first. We’ll access to all the well drilled reports in Nova Scotia with the help of NSDOE. These reports will help us determine if there is water available throughout the area, how deep we can drill the wells, and in some instances the chemistry of the water. We believe that the more information we have about your area, the more precise the estimate can be. 


All our professionals will be able to answer questions with regard to the well drilling act, safe distances to boundary lines, septic systems, and sump holes. We have the experience and knowledge to install each system properly or fix any issue your system has, such as no water.


Whether you’re interested in a well-grounded geothermal well or a water treatment system, we’re your smart choice. At George Rudderham Well Drilling, we install a wide variety of wells for easy and sustainable heating and cooling. We cater to the needs of residential, commercial, industrial, municipal, agricultural, and governmental clients in an effective manner.

Our Variety of Well Drilling

  • Water wells

  • Geothermal wells

  • Environmental wells

  • Municipal wells

  • Industrial wells

When your well is first drilled, you can always notice a muddy area with a piece of casing pipe sticking out about two feet above the ground level. We will always recommend calling the backhoe to dig the ditch from the well to the building. Usually, the ditch should be three and a half to four-feet deep and large enough for one man to work in.
