Well Drilling, Pump Work, and Covid-19 

Updated: March 21st,  2020

Many questions and concerns arise during times like the one we are currently experiencing. The team here at Post Pump and Drilling are actively working to continually provide access to vital water resources. 

As the communities, states, and the country take new measures to combat COVID-19, local and national governments are enacting “Shelter in Place” orders. The order is strongly encouraged and protects those who are most at risk. In order to support day-to-day living, official enactments distinguish between essential and non-essential businesses.

The Department of Homeland Security released a memo (Click Here to View), that identifies work in the industry of ‘water and wastewater’ as an essential service for maintaining the countries infrastructure viability.

Both the National Ground Water Association (NGWA) and the Montana Water Well Drillers Association (MMWDA) reached out to us and stated: “If your state or county is under a ‘shelter in place’ or ‘lockdown’ order, you have the right to keep drilling wells, installing pumps, maintaining water systems, and any duty that ensures water keeps flowing for your customers.”

In order to ensure that our customers are able to obtain and maintain access to essential water, we will continue to provide well drilling and pump services as authorized by official government orders.

We are committed to doing our part, to do our job, to the best of our abilities, and to maintain proper social etiquette as advised by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and other governing officials

We commit to follow these guidelines:

  • Maintain a normal work schedule.
  • Refrain from entering personal domains.
  • Refrain from physical contact.
  • Maintain a safe physical distance while in person.
  • Encourage mediated communications whenever possible, such as email, phone, and text messages.
  • Mandate employees to refrain from visiting work sites if they feel sick.
  • Disinfect products and surface areas before and after contact.
  • Actively monitor employees for symptoms of COVID-19.
  • Proactively communicate with our customers.
  • Wear appropriate protective apparel and gear such as respirators, long sleeves, and gloves, according to the situation.

As a company, we value honesty, compassion, and friendliness. We are committed to exemplifying these values throughout this period of proactive health precautions. If you have any questions or concerns, please let us know. 

Stay safe. Stay healthy.

Kind Regard,


John Post and Team at Post Pump and Drilling
