Who can plug a well?
  • A property owner may plug a well only at his/her residence.
  • A registered well drilling contractor or his/her employee may plug a well at any residence, farm, industry, business, or other public water supply.

Farms often have associated, but not necessarily contiguous, properties that have structures served by water wells. These outlying farm wells are considered the same as the farmer's residential well and may be plugged by the owner.
