After acquiring 17 years of dewatering experience with one of the largest dewatering contractors in the United States, William C. Holden established Viking Drillers, Inc. in 1983. Today, Viking Drillers, Inc. is owned and operated by Sherry & Kevin Montoya. Together with their team of experienced and talented individuals, they have made VDI the company it is today. VDI is highly respected and has grown to be the largest dewatering contractor on the west coast. Our projects include small well point jobs to multi-million dollar dewatering projects, like the Sacramento County Northwest Interceptor. VDI has worked closely with owners, consultants, engineers, contractors, and governmental agencies to solve diverse dewatering problems.
