Municipal Water Wells
Take a look around the town of Banff or Jasper, or locally in Vermilion, Kerrobert, St. Albert and Cutknife, and you’ll see our some of our work. We’ve invested time and talent in modifying and adapting our equipment, which provides our municipal clients with a highly efficient return on their investment. When you’re working with the public purse, we know that you’re accountable in more ways than one. We work hard, with integrity, in order to give our municipal clients exactly what they need, when they need it.
Industrial Water Wells
Our history in the area, coupled with our expertise in the oil and gas industry, make us ideal for installing source water wells for oilfield secondary recovery methods – namely steam and water injection.
We proudly work alongside several hydrogeological and environmental consulting companies across Alberta and Saskatchewan, helping ensure the safety of our most precious resource: water. We’ve been doing soil testing, installing de-watering wells, conducting compaction testing for sewer installations, and monitoring wells since 1989, and we’re proud to continue offering environmental drilling services today.
Serving a range of commercial clients (like Imperial, Suncor, Syncrude and CNRL, to name just a few), we offer installation of oil and gas surface casing ranging up to 12” casing in depths up to 300 meters. Our rigs are versatile, and we pride ourselves on completing projects in a safe, efficient, and cost-effective manner for our customers.
Massive projects like the TransCanada pipeline (we worked on the stretch from Winnipeg to the BC border) and the Interprovincial Pipeline running across Alberta carry the fingerprint of McAllister Drilling. We install deep anode beds for pipelines, plant sites, plus other industrial and municipal uses; to ensure a top quality installation, we’ve adapted or converted our specialized equipment.
McAllister Drilling always strives to make things easier for our clients. With our in-house vac truck, we can streamline your project to ensure targets are met efficiently.
We’re proud to have the expertise and equipment to service any well (regardless of who drilled it).

Water Testing/Pump Testing
Whether for residential or industrial use, we offer water sampling and pumping for water quality and quantity. We also offer rental pumps, generators, flow meters and accessories to help complete the job in a safe and cost-efficient manner.
Non-active wells and their abandonments are one of the most important yet overlooked items in the water well industry. Properly abandoning non-active wells is starting to get the attention it deserves, with the government making grants available to well owners (the portion refunded depends on province and year of completion). McAllister Drilling has the materials, equipment, experience, and the Journeyman employees to ensure that your wells are properly abandoned.
Wells that are not properly disinfected can cause damage to both your well and plumbing, creating potential long-term problems. McAllister Drilling proudly offers the tools and technique for proper well disinfection, offering peace of mind concerning your water quality and purity.
McAllister Drilling can meet all of your water treatment needs, from a simple softener to Reverse Osmosis systems. A majority of areas need some level of water treatment, and with our expertise, we can design a system specifically for your water quality, protecting your biggest investment as maintenance-free and chemical-free as possible.
