Replacement/Repair Well Evaluations
The Site Evaluation is the first step in the process obtaining a permit to replace a failing or outdated water supply on land that does not have municipal water services available. After an application has been made, a sanitarian will evaluate the proposed site to determine a suitable system replacement based on the requirements of the sanitary code. Some of the specific items that are examined during the evaluation are:
- Isolation distances to possible contamination sources (existing or planned)
- Distance to property lines
- Accessability for drill rig
- Accessability for maintenance
- Well abandonment
