H.D. Services Ltd has been constructing water supply and soakaway boreholes throughout South East England since 1984 and we have been active members of the Well Drillers Association since 1988. We operate cable-tool percussion drilling rigs only, the drilling method acknowledged by the Environment Agency as the most suitable way to drill the chalk aquifer. All drilling works are undertaken by our fully qualified staff.

Our employees are accredited in various aspects of their craft and we have qualified engineers, electricians and plumbers as part of our management team. We have constructed chalk boreholes for the Environment Agency and have an active working relationship with the British Geological Survey, to whom copies of all our borehole logs are sent for inclusion in the national archive. 

Provided the hydro-geology at the site is suitable, we can drill into the aquifer and abstract up to 20 cubic metres of water per day without the need for an abstraction licence. We have constructed water supply boreholes for various clients, both domestic and commercial,  including water companies,  large farm estates, golf clubs, garden centers, fish farms, car washes, public houses and many more.

Operational Area

Occasionally, boreholes drilled into the chalk aquifer may need to be developed to increase performance or rehabilitated due to blockage by incrustations. We also offer borehole development services including acidisation, air-lifting, pump testing and iron treatment.

Our expertise covers water supply boreholes to feed an open-loop GSHP system (we are fully MCS accredited heat pump installers), water supply boreholes to provide an independent water supply and water treatment for potable supplies. We also construct soakaway boreholes for various highways agencies and councils for road drainage or treated effluent disposal.
