Bore redevelopment may be required subsequent to a camera inspection,  decline in well yield, or water quality issues. HWWS offers a full well service solution. Following a well analysis and flow testing, the primary technique for redeveloping the bore will be discussed and undertaken with client consent. We pride ourselves in site management and are aware of possible environmental consequences associated with the discharge of large volumes of water. A Site Specific Safety Plan is discussed and produced to mitigate risk. On acceptance, the plan is put into force prior to any work being carried out and monitored throughout operations.


HWWS provides a call-out service engaging with clients, councils and consultants to contribute toward a successful outcome on all projects. Site visits conducted with the client provide the opportunity for an accurate estimate of likely costs associated with the job.
