Water Well Driller
There are two branches of this trade in Alberta: (1) water well driller - water well driller and (2) water well driller - earth loop technician. Water well drillers set up and operate the mobile rotary, boring or cable tool drilling rigs used to drill residential, commercial and industrial water wells. They also conduct environmental assessment drilling. Earth loop technicians use similar types of tools and equipment to prepare sites for closed loop heating and cooling systems. They may also help in the design of earth loops. For more information, see the Trades and Occupations section of Alberta's Tradesecrets website.
