Uncas Health District, in cooperation with the State Department of Consumer Protection, is responsible for ensuring that on-site water wells are installed and maintained in a sanitary manner.
The District is responsible for ensuring that proper separating distances are maintained between all sources of pollution, including septic systems, ground water drains, etc., and the well.
We also maintain records of well drilling permits, completion reports and well water test results.
Well permit applications are submitted by the licensed well driller on forms that they obtain from the Department of Consumer Protection. The District reviews the application and conducts an inspection of the well site.
Do you have a water treatment system for your well water? What can be done with the backwash water? Pelase refer to the guidelines for the proper disposal of wastewater from water treatment devices.
