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The Site Evaluation is the first step in the process obtaining a permit to replace a failing or outdated water supply on land that does not have municipal water services available.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
