Preserving Water Resources
Water is a much sought-after commodity and well drilling accuracy is paramount. Farmers need to demonstrate to the regulatory bodies that they are not wasting water resources and are working within the terms of their consent. Barber Drilling operate Environment Canterbury-approved flow testing equipment, which can handle anything from 5 to 75 litres per second.
Barber Well Drilling has seen the demand for well maintenance and is set up to redevelop old wells to bring them back into life again.
