Your Drilling Rig Supplier Says, “Congratulations Kevin J. Bonacum!”

March 14, 2014 by Savannah Adkins

It was recently brought to my attention that a member of the National Ground Water Association, Kevin J. Bonacum just joined the ranks of certified well drillers through the Voluntary Certification Program. On behalf of Rig Source Inc. we want to congratulate him on his achievements.

NGWA’s Certification Program

The NGWA’s program is “the only national certification program available for contractors and pump installers in the groundwater industry,” according to the organizations website. That being said, it is truly an honor for those that can meet the qualifications to pass examination. Of the 130 exams taken in the last year, there is only a passing rate of approximately 42% as was reported in February’s Water Well Journal. That is a relatively small portion of individuals to obtain this level of excellence and recognition in the field.

Our Ties to Kevin

Rig Source is particularly proud of Kevin’s achievements because he is not only an association member along with us, but a long time drilling rig customer. In the past he has utilized both drilling rig rentals as well as purchased used drilling rigs from Rig Source. His most recent purchase was a CME 550X auger drilling rig which is being utilized for geotechnical drilling. Rig Source takes pride in taking care of our drilling rig customers, and is thrilled to have such a talented and dedicated driller choosing us for to rent and purchase our equipment.

Just In Time for National Groundwater Awareness Week

News of Kevin’s recent certification couldn’t have come at a better time. The NGWA is currently promoting National Groundwater Awareness Week which began on March 9th and will run until the 15th. During this time, the NGWA and its members spend time educating the public on the importance of groundwater.

His achievements and certification are a strong example of his dedication to the industry by his commitment to continuing education. After all, it is individuals such as Kevin, who are highly skilled and trained that ultimately, protect our Nation’s groundwater.  Hopefully, through his example, many more will follow suit.
