Private Water Systems

A private water system is any water system other than a public water supply system that provides water for human consumption. The most common examples of private waters systems include wells, hauled water systems, cisterns and drinking water ponds. The construction, alteration or sealing of a private water system will require a permit from the health department. Only registered water system contractors may construct, alter or seal private water systems, drill water wells, and install pit-less adapters.

Our agency permits new well construction and alterations to existing systems.  We also conduct water sampling for personal use and for real estate transactions . We do not regulate or inspect systems that are used only for agricultural purposes.
