Decommissioning / Well Closure

Omega provides decommissioning services for abandoned monitoring wells. When a water well is no longer being used for water retrieval or sampling it is abandoned. An abandoned well is a direct pathway from the surface to the acquifer and may result in ground water contamination. Therefore, it must be properly closed or decommissioned.

We are BC certified well drillers and can sign off on well closures. Our experienced drillers can advise on the best way and different methods to decommission abandoned wells.
