About Us

Founded in 1958

We are and have always been a family-owned and family-operated business.

Our story began in 1958, when C.R. Smith started drilling water wells in Woodland Park, CO.  After a time he made his way to Gilpin County and for a while drilled wells in both locations.  Preferring Gilpin County, he bought some property – the same property that our company is located on today.

C.R.’s son Frank worked with his dad on and off throughout his childhood, and in 1978 he talked his dad into buying a new drill rig and he took over the well drilling completely.  He’s still at it today, along with his wife Anne and their son’s David and Adam.

We are one of the very few companies that not only drill the well but install, replace, and repair the submersible pumps and pump systems that are part of your water supply.

David installs and services our pump systems, and Adam works with Frank or David, as needed. Anne runs the office, delivers parts, and takes care of all the other day-to-day tasks of running the business.

Please stop by to say Hello, or give us a call. We would love to hear from you.
