Senior Project Manager
Greg is a true renaissance man. Like Jim, he knows the water well business forwards and backwards and is somewhat of a savant at remembering the details of every well he has drilled or worked on. He is also involved in a popular Czech polka band called The Czechaholics (www.czechaholics.com). (Click here for a video of Greg playing with his band). This keeps him busy most weekends playing dance halls, church picnics, and family reunions across the state. When not providing people water or playing with the band, Greg and his family enjoy fishing, swimming, and biking together. At work, Greg can design you a water well system to match your needs no matter how small or large or find a way to fix a well system that seems beyond hope.
