About Water Wells

photo of Water Wells Drilling RigWater Wells is the leading provider of well drilling and water well pump service in southern Wisconsin. Our family has been active in the water well industry since 1885, providing the highest quality wells for homes, farms and industry. We are a family owned business who has been drilling wells here in Wisconsin for 5 generations. We put that experience of well drilling knowledge into every well we drill.

Company History

It all began in 1885 when Herman Berkholtz was digging a well near Lowell, WI. He was followed by his son August, who cut the trees to build a true drilling machine that was powered by an “oil pull tractor.” Next was Ed “Berkie” Berkholtz who made the move to a self-contained truck mounted steel drilling machine. His son Dick was the first to successfully use air rotary for drilling water wells. Now Michael uses state of the art equipment and technology, substantially decreasing drilling time with uncompromising quality.
