Karragullen Water Drilling was founded by Eric Ghilarducci in 2011. Up until then he had been a full time fruit grower. During the drought of 2010 his orchard experienced catastrophic crop damage due to a severe lack of water & he bought an old rig in the hope of finding water. Since that very modest beginning he has watched his drilling business grow & has invested heavily into it while at the same time undergoing many ADIA drilling courses. He is a Class 2 licensed driller.
