Design and Development of New Water Supplies

Fire Well Systems

Fire Well System

Peerless-Midwest Inc. is a full-service, water supply contractor. We have established ourselves as experts in water well drilling for Indiana and Michigan. Our staff of Hydrogeologists can design wells to provide the needed water for fire suppression at a very low project cost.
If you use a Fire Well as the source of your fire water, annual inspections on the well are required to ensure that it continues to be a reliable water supply. Peerless-Midwest is a water supply contractor who is in the business of drilling and maintaining wells. Having a contractor who can professionally inspect the condition of both your vertical turbine pump and your well is the only way to ensure your complete system is meeting code.

When favorable hydrogeologic conditions exist, the fire well provides the most cost-effective approach. Our staff of Hydrogeologists utilizes modern geophysical techniques to assess groundwater availability.

Wells are designed to provide maximum production and efficiency for site-specific conditions.  Direct rotary and cable tool drilling methods are provided by Peerless-Midwest.

When a sufficient quantity of water is not available from a public water supply system, a code conforming source must be developed. Peerless-Midwest has designed and constructed hundreds of systems to meet fire protection requirements at the lowest possible cost while maintaining the highest quality standards.

Open Pond Systems

Peerless-Midwest Inc. can excavate an open pond and supply a complete pump intake structure and pump house. Our ability to be your single-source provider for the entire fire water supply system allows you to eliminate the nuisance of multiple contractors being involved and provides a single source of responsibility.

Reservoir Systems

Some applications call for an underground concrete reservoir or pre-fabricated tank as the best solution for fire water supply. Our staff has successfully designed and installed many complete underground reservoir systems. This type of supply can save space and is often utilized when the groundwater supply is not sufficient enough to support a well or when pond systems are not practical.
