About Us


After 30 plus years of working for someone else we decided to venture out on our own. So with a catchy business name - Who doesn't like the name "Black Dog Drilling?" - and a single drilling rig we started our own "MA & PA" water well drilling company.

It didn't take long before we expanded our fleet to include five drilling rigs. Of course it helps we are passionate about what we do. Besides having the passion for water well drilling we get immense satisfaction in telling our customers "we found you water!" and sometimes lots of it.

Over the years and to this day, our company's main goal is to strive for outstanding customer service and lasting relationship building. Whether you need us to troubleshoot your water well problems over the phone, visit with you on site to discuss your needs or answer your questions several months and sometimes several years later we are just a phone call away.

Who We Are

Len Blair, President, is a licensed Water Well Driller in the province of Alberta since 1978. With extensive experience, knowledge and ongoing education throughout Western Canada and the Northwestern USA, Len brings his expertise to the helm of our company. When asked what he likes about the profession of water well drilling after all these years - he smiles and tells you "helping people and the appreciation of getting them water."

Tammy Blair, B.Sc., Vice President, is responsible for Finance, Administration and the Corporate HSE program. While Tammy worked with Len on a water well drilling rig as his helper one summer when living in the USA she prefers the comfort of remaining in the office and working behind the scenes.

Hank Detkavich, Customer Sales, and a licensed Water Well Driller in the province of Alberta since 1976 has worked with Len Blair for over ten years and has known him for over fifteen years.
