Our History

Get to Know Our Fourth Generation Water Well Drilling Company

Well driller's who didn't have a waiting list were scarce during World War II, but Delbert "Casey" Jones needed his well drilled. He purchased an old homemade drill that was equipped with a one cylinder Wisconsin engine to power. When Casey finished his well, his neighbors wanted wells also, and so Casey established Casey Jones Well Drilling of Pleasant Hill, which was the start of Jones Drilling & Pumps.

Not long after the start of his business, Casey assessed the inadequacy of his equipment and purchased a new Bucyrus-Erie cable tool drilling machine to boost his business. The company grew from one rig to 5 cable tool rigs within a few years. With the advancement of technology and equipment over the 60's and 70's Jones Drilling & Pumps can now construct a well usually within a day or two.

The Jones family comprised of 8 children raised around the drilling equipment. Three of the sons have owned and operated drilling businesses throughout Oregon.

Bert Jones, Casey’s oldest son, drilled his first well at the age of 12 and has been actively involved in Oregon’s ground water service ever since. Bert’s oldest son, Bret Jones, is now heavily involved in the well drilling business and has 2 sons who may also continue the family business for many years to come.

Whether you need a domestic, stock, or irrigation well, we have the technology, equipment, and the personnel to get the job done. The company has the policy of being the first in its field with new construction techniques and modern equipment.
