Drilling Tech

Chambers & Phillips, Inc. employs mud rotary drilling. This method uses a rotating bit which cuts a bore hole, then the cuttings are removed with drilling fluids (mud). Mud provides support for the bore hole as well as cools and lubricates the bit. After the well is drilled and the casing and screen is installed, the well is developed, then completed. 

The vast majority of water wells drilled in the Van Zandt and Henderson county areas are drilled and produced from the Wilcox formation. There are other aquifers in East Texas. The others aquifers do not have the same quality of water but can be used for some irrigation. For more information, please contact us or visit the following other websites.
