A Little History

Over the years the company expanded. It now excels in servicing the water needs of rural homes and delivers unmatched expertise in geothermal heating and cooling in the region. In a nutshell, The Water Shed offers a full spectrum of water services:
- Consultation & site inspection.
- Water testing & treatment.
- Separate Drinking water systems and pump installations.
- Separate Well drilling & hydro-fracturing.
- Geothermal cooling & heating.
