The Well Drillers Association was formed in the early 1940’s. It is a fee paying audited membership forum acting for interested parties in the design and construction of water wells and boreholes. Its membership consists of companies and individuals engaged in well construction, test pumping, maintenance and rehabilitation. Membership is not open to consultants, manufacturers and materials suppliers however a number of key industry suppliers that support our members with well related equipment including pumps, can be seen under the Suppliers page on this site.
The Association meetings allow members to discuss what is happening or changing in the industry, to discuss technical specifications, contractual obligations and opportunities as well as problems, training when necessary and appropriate, and the potential impact of legislation on the industry. The WDA maintains close contacts with the Environment Agency, the British Geological Survey and the various Water Authorities and Water Companies. We aim to share best practice.
If you are a visitor to this site looking for a reputable driller for a project you may be considering, or need some advice on an existing private water installation, then please get in touch and we will be happy to offer some help and advice as appropriate. If you are a well drilling company and think you might like to join us we would love to hear from you.
