Building a New Home?

Building a home can be stressful, but the team at Odenheimer Co. is here to walk you through the process for your Lehigh Valley, PA area well drilling project. Many homeowners, and even some home builders, are familiar with city water systems and may not have as much experience with a well water system.

Odenheimer will work closely with you to understand your unique water needs, and develop a well and water system plan to meet them. We will provide a customized estimate based on your new home's location and our 85-year collection of well records.

The depth of the well is proportional to the amount of water available as well as each individual customer's needs. The Lehigh Valley has a large variation in geologic formations, so the well depth will be specific to your property. Odenheimer Co. will use both in-house and state records to estimate your well's approximate depth.

The necessity to obtain a permit is dependent on the location of your property. Most locations in Bucks County, PA and areas south of the Lehigh Valley will require a permit. Select areas in the Lehigh Valley area will need a permit, but the team at Odenheimer Co. will assist you in all stages of the permitting process.


Odenheimer Co. has grouted all new wells in the Lehigh Valley area since 2019 as a standard practice. We perform grouting operations on each well to NGWA and PGWA recommended best practices. We highly recommend all modern wells be grouted to protect against the risk of contamination.

Well Not Producing Enough Water?

Odenheimer Co. will determine the depth of your well and the amount of water being produced.

In some cases, we may be able to deepen the existing well on your Lehigh Valley area property to allow for greater water output.

In other cases, the well may require hydrofracking, a process in which high pressure water is pumped into the wellbore to open water veins that have been closed off and allow additional water flow for greater output.

Finally, it may be necessary to drill a second well and install a system in which water output is generated from both wells and switched as needed.

Well Abandonment

Odenheimer Co. provides well abandonment and decommissioning services for Lehigh Valley PA area residential, commercial and municipal projects. Examples include new businesses occupying land with existing but unused wells, and public water systems seeking to eliminate excess wells.

Wells are abandoned when there is a risk for contamination due to being unused or improperly sealed. Some municipalities in the Lehigh Valley and surrounding areas limit the number of wells that can exist on a property, so excess wells may require abandonment. In commercial applications, each well must be permitted and, if not in use, must be abandoned (decommissioned). Odenheimer follows PA DCNR/ PA DEP well abandonment protocols on all projects.

Once located, the well is prepared for abandonment by clearing the borehole of any pumps, pipes, wiring or naturally occurring obstructions. The well is then filled in through a process known as grouting. Various materials may be used in the grouting process, including bentonite chips or slurry.
