Gain peace of mind knowing that your well assets are being cared for by a single source…
the leading experts in ground water asset management.

Utility Service Group has partnered with Subsurface Technologies, Inc. the recognized leader in ground water to offer a broad range of well rehabilitation technologies, including AQUA GARD® a unique, sustainable approach to improve and maintain well performance. AQUA GARD® incorporates the permanent placement of energy injection equipment installed in the well alongside the pump, allowing wells to be effectively maintained without removing the pump. A scheduled periodic cleaning service is performed, usually in 1 day, reducing down time and cost while insuring that the well surfaces are kept clean, stabilizing raw water quality and increasing flow and capacity.

  • Improve and Maintain Well Performance
    The use of CO2 achieves greater energy delivery and deeper penetration than other technologies.
  • Maintain Consistent Water Quality / Environmentally Sustainable
    Custom designed cleaning schedule provides for maintenance of water quality by preventing interim buildup of mineralization and/or biofilm, reducing chemical treatment costs and environmental Impact.
  • Reduce Operational Cost and Extend Asset Life
    Preventative maintenance lowers life cycle cost by eliminating the need to recover from significant production losses due to fouling. This is achieved by maintaining a greater flow, significantly increasing production over the life of the asset while simultaneously reducing pumping costs.

Staffed by experienced field crews and backed by the industry’s leading experts, we deliver custom engineered asset management programs for the unique characteristics of each well.

Proactive Well Cleaning Saves Money and Reduces Downtime

STI has been providing well rehabilitation services for the past 20 years. During that period we have treated more than 6000 wells worldwide,and have come to believe that it is far better to maintain yield and efficiencies than to try to recover them. This experience has led to the development of Aqua Gard™ Preventative Well Maintenance Systems, where proactive rather than reactive cleaning has proved to be more efficient and much more economical for the client. In addition, because well and geological formation surfaces are kept clean, raw water quality is improved.

The Aqua Gard™ system includes the placement of energy injection equipment permanently installed with the pump in place, allowing for the regularly scheduled, routine, preventative service to the well without removing the pump. The system can be installed in wells that are equipped with both submersible and vertical line shaft turbine pumps. Local raw water quality, specific well operation and historical rate of well plugging will determine the intervals between services. Aqua Gard™ is ideal for new well installation or for installation following a major well rehabilitation effort. Wells that experience severe and rapid fouling recognize a financial and efficiency benefit from the onset.

Aqua Gard™ is the latest product in our line of innovative technologies. The Aqua Gard™ system is for preventative well maintenance. AquaGard™ inhibits well plugging and the resulting lost well capacity. Aqua Gard™ incorporates the permanent placement of energy injection equipment installed in the well alongside the well pump allowing wells to be effectively maintained without removing the pump. A scheduled periodic cleaning service is performed usually in 1 day, reducing down time and cost while insuring that the well surfaces are kept clean for improved water quality and increased flow and capacity.
