A permit is required to install a new or replacement well on your property. If a well currently exists on the property and is being replaced, you will be asked to properly abandon (plug) the old well. If the old well meets the well construction code requirements and you wish to continue to use the well, or if it cannot be readily accessed, you must indicate this on the permit application.
Instructions for obtaining a water well permit:
- Complete the application form with as much detail as possible, including the site plan. Forms can be picked up at the Health Department in Room 101 during regular business hours, or can be mailed to you upon request.
- The appropriate fee must be submitted along with your application(s). Fee schedule
