Excavation Services

Nequette Drilling & Excavating can help you with almost anything that requires dirt moving equipment. For those building new homes we offer: Road Construction, Foundation Excavation, Water, Power and Gas Line Trenching and Septic Systems with leach fields. At Nequette Drilling & Excavating we install Septic and Leach Systems that blend with the terrain.


The location of the Septic’s leach field should be chosen before the well is drilled. A well pump can pump up or down a hill with ease however, waste water must flow downhill.

Mountain homes and cabins have different requirements; homes that are occupied on a full time basis have no problem keeping a septic operating. The constant influx of water together with bacteria breaking down waste produce enough heat to keep the tank and field from freezing. Mountain cabins that are vacant for extended periods during the winter require additional frost protection when designing and installing the system.

The better the soil conditions the better a leach field will work and the less it will cost both now and in the future, so planning is important. The back-fill of a septic is the only thing most people see and we strive to leave the site as natural looking as possible so when the grasses grow back it will look like “it belongs”.
