Environment History


While we enjoy getting the result of finding water, we understand we have a responsibility to take care of the environment and minimise our impact on it by avoiding things like contamination of aquifers and water supplies.  By being honest and upfront with you from the start of the project to the end, we both can get off on the right foot and get a good result.


We are proud members of the NZ Drillers Federation and Water Well drilling is the epitomy of what kiwi’s call hard yakka. Big machinery, tough conditions and the added aim of finding water. You need to be alert and have good endurance to implement and carry out a water well drilling project, as there are many variables when working outside and when working with such a mysterious resource as underground water. But, we’re not complaining. In fact we thrive on the challenges we face, and you can be sure that we will supply you with a passionate team, completely committed to giving you a good result.


Carlyle Drilling is operated by a third generation driller. First it was Grandad, then Dad, and these days the company lies in the hands of the son Mark, who now manages and carries on the family tradition of working the land. The machinery, skills, and experiences that have been handed down to Mark over the years all contribute to the solid reputation Carlyle drilling has established since as far back as 1965.
