Today we’re taking a look back to the 2013 Expo presentation covering air rotary drilling by NGWA member and 2015 President-Elect Richard Thron, MGWC, of Mantyla Well Drilling Inc., Stillwater, Minnesota.
This workshop covers the general operation of air rotary drilling and proper selection of equipment needed to safely construct a water supply well using this method. Proper setup and teardown procedures are also discussed. Those new to the industry and those in need of a refresher can benefit from this presentation.
A little background on Thron… He began working full-time with Mantyla Well Drilling in 1966 and became the owner in 2000. He’s been an NGWA member since the 1980s, has served on numerous committees and task forces, and has participated in numerous panel discussions and seminars as a speaker on DOT-OSHA, safety, and public education, as well as air rotary drilling.
