The Department of Environmental Protection regulates the construction, repair, and abandonment of wells, as well as the persons and businesses undertaking such practices. Governing boards of water management districts are authorized to implement programs for the issuance of permits for the location, construction, repair, and abandonment of water wells. However, the Department may prescribe minimum standards for the location, construction, repair, and abandonment of water wells throughout all or parts of the state, as may be determined by the Department.
