Lindsay Drilling, an Experienced Well Drilling Contractor

Our Montana well drillers make use of the latest air rotary drilling equipment, as well as the most modern drilling procedures. Lindsay Drilling uses steel and thermoplastic casing in all the water wells we install. As per state regulations, the first 25 feet of every water well is required to be cased in steel and grouted to block any surface water that may leak into the well causing potential contamination.

The most common well size in our area is 6″ however, we can install 2″ through 24″ wells for domestic, commercial, industrial, and agricultural uses. Only when a well is developed to our standards and satisfaction, do we consider it to be completed. Combined with our experience and knowledge of the area, we can offer you quality at an affordable price.

The drilling industry is ever growing and we aim to keep up with the always-changing regulations and standards. In addition to drilling water wells, we also specialize in constructing a variety of other projects including monitor holes, elevator shafts, geothermal holes, de-watering wells, heat pump holes, and piling holes. Our drilling specialists travel around Western Montana to perform these services that complement our general water well drilling business.
