In late May of 2012 the Society started an improvement project on its Fire Hall #1, located in the Watch Lake area. This project would include the drilling of a well and eventually see a washroom and running water installed in the fire hall. Because this project was being totally funded with the Community Gaming Grant funds the Society had to secure a number of quotes for the job. Weston Water Wells came in with the lowest bid and their services were retained to complete the job.
From start to finish, Jerry Weston and his staff were prompt, courteous, professional and very flexible to our needs and concerns. Unfortunately, our initial depth estimates were wrong and the well had to be drilled much deeper than originally thought. Since we are a totally volunteer fire department and not a tax-based operation (as are the C.R.D. fire halls) Weston Water Wells gave the Society a very generous donation off the cost of their drilling services, which allowed us to complete the job with the grant money that was available. It is hoped that one day in the near future we will again be awarded grant funding to complete a similar project at our Fire Hall #2, located in the North Green Lake area. When that occurs we will most certainly be giving Weston Water Wells another call.

It comes with great pleasure to share my experience to anyone who is planning on drilling a “water well” in the Cariboo.
After purchasing a piece of bare land in the 100 Mile House area, I knew it would take great effort in developing it. However, in my due diligence of searching for tradesman and sub-contractors; it was always easier to make a decision when a referral was suggested. Mention ‘Weston Water Wells’ to anyone who has lived in the area, you can be sure that they will be highly recommended. When I inquired for an estimate, they arrived on time, and in their humble way, you knew they were confident and experienced. It was a simple decision to hire Weston Water Wells: they helped with suggestions on where the best place would be to drill the well in relation to the future layout of buildings, fences, etc…
With their expert advice, professionalism and competitive pricing, they made drilling for water look easy. I would highly recommend Weston Water Wells to anyone looking for water. Thank you Weston!
