We contracted a new well to be drilled in excess of 200'. We had a working well at 40' and three of our neighbors had contracted new wells over 200' and all had excellent tasting water, so we wanted the same thing. We knew it might be 190' or 250', and made this very clear with the driller. Well, the driller made a well at 49', stopped drilling and finished the well. We made it clear again. He stopped drilling the second time at 103'. What didn't he understand??? The home is a second home, so we weren't there to monitor. He assured us we would have good tasting water at 103'. . . we DO NOT. We asked him to drill us the well we contracted, 200' or greater and he is demanding we sign a new contract at his increased rates, now $1300 more, for the 200' well. He also is claiming the grout and gravel used for the 103' well is 240% higher than his original estimate at a 200' well and is also requiring that we pay to abandon the 103' well, if he drills us the 200' well. In addition, he did $1200 to our dirt driveway. We told him NOT to enter the premises if the heavy rains we were experiencing continued. The rains continued and he entered the premises anyway. Our neighbors watched him repeatedly get stuck in our driveway. He now is demanding we pay the balance for the bad tasting well or sign a new contract. In addition, he will not repair or pay for his driveway damage. We understood there would be damage at the site and site clean-up, but this is far beyond any site clean-up. In addition, when he trenched for a 4" water pipe, he used a 3' trencher and left clay all over the property. What a mess. The $1200 damaged driveway is separate from his 3' wide trencher damage. Any suggestions??? We'd like to have him stay off our property, let him keep the 50% we paid him and get a reverse osmosis water system. I don't trust anything he says. What recourse do we have? He's threatening to sue us. I'd like to sue him. Thanks for any suggestions!
