WellJet® Delivers Impressive Results For Nevada Ranch

The Wild West. The frontier. The wide-open spaces. Where the deer and the antelope play. To the extent that these mythological places still exist in 21st-century America, they may be found in Nye County, Nevada.  Out here, you’d best drive alertly – especially at night.  There are miles of Open Range, and the cattle complacently roaming the unfenced scrub are as black as a starless sky.  Not to mention herds of pronghorn antelope, and wild horses that run the valleys. The farmers and ranchers who work this land are a hardy, independent breed.  Miles from what we laughingly call civilization, they must be resilient and self-sufficient, as well as neighborly. The key to growing crops on this high desert soil is groundwater.  Wells are the beating heart that provides the precious fluid, allowing alfalfa to produce up to four cuts per summer. When production and yield at Railroad Valley Farms Well #4 was measured … [Read more...]

SUCCESSFUL WELL REHAB COLLABORATION

HOPKINS GROUNDWATER, GENERAL PUMP AND WELLJET® TEAM UP ON A WELL REHAB FOR VENTURA WATER The Mission San Buenaventura was founded by Franciscan friar Junipero Serra in 1782, near a Chumash village dating back to the turn of the prior millennium.  Over the centuries, the city has grown to a population of 110,000.  Ventura’s homes, businesses, government and agriculture rely on 100% local water sources, including surface and groundwater from Lake Casitas, Ventura River, three groundwater basins, and recycled water.  It is particularly important that water production is safe, reliable, cost-effective and efficient. The Ventura Golf Course Well #5, which taps into the Oxnard Plain groundwater basin/ Fox Canyon aquifer, was drilled in 1988.  Its total depth is 873’.  The carbon steel blank is 18” diameter from 0-200’, with a reducer to 14” OD.  The stainless-steel well screen is Roscoe Moss Ful-Flo Louvers, … [Read more...]

WellJet Enables Dubai Hydroponic Farm Efficiency

Armela Farms 4 Well Rehabilitation Project WellJet teamed up with Middle East partner NPS Emirates to rehabilitate the wells, which had been breaking suction and threatening the viability of operations at this leading UAE supplier of locally grown, high quality lettuce, vegetables and herbs. Designed to pump 24 hours a day, the wells were only capable of making water for 10-14 hours before having to be completely shut down and allowed days of recovery. The wells were producing an aggregate total of 19.62 gpm (5.3 m3/hr).  Specific Capacity averaged just 0.029 gpm/ft (0.006 l/s/m).  To keep the farm's hydroponic operations running, water had to be trucked in - at tremendous cost. The WellJet high-pressure hydro jetting process, combined with airlift development, removed obstructions from inside the wells, opened clogged perforations, stimulated the gravel pack, and enabled evacuation of sand, clay and residual drilling fluid mud … [Read more...]
