Top Quality Fresh Water Wells in Southern Ontario
Founder Howard Johnson started digging wells in the late 50s, first by hand and then with a homemade boring rig. In 1969, he partnered with Floyd Baetz to form the company as it is known today.
Floyd soon bought out his partner and brought his son, John, into the business. With two boring machines working daily and a plant manufacturing well casings, the company was installing over 300 wells per year.
When Floyd passed away in 1977 (age 44), John and his wife Betty took over the business, running it until 2010, when John sold the business to Darcy Avey, a 26-year employee of the company. Today, Darcy and John continue to work together, providing safe, clean drinking water to homes throughout Ontario.
Johnson & Baetz Well Boring Company Ltd.: Serving Southern Ontario
For more than 4 decades, Johnson & Baetz Well Boring has been providing customers with fresh, clean water wells and well-related services. Based in Waterford and “working everywhere,” we serve almost all of southern Ontario. By boring wells rather than drilling, we can offer sufficient volume to locations with little water and soft, clear water to areas with high iron and strong mineral content.
Clean, Reliable Drinking Water
A clean, reliable source of drinking water is one of the most important components of a rural home. Many municipalities won’t issue a building permit until a well has been installed and tested. While Ontario is blessed with plentiful fresh water aquifers, finding them is not as easy as digging a hole in the ground. The importance of hiring a licensed, experienced professional to install your well cannot be underestimated. A properly constructed well will provide ample drinking water for generations to come. Johnson & Baetz Well Boring has been supplying homes and families with quality fresh water wells for over 40 years. Call us for:
- New wells installed 36” or 48” diameter

All work is performed by licensed well technicians in accordance with Ontario Reg. 903. Please contact us to discuss your needs or to schedule service.
