How will my water well application be processed?
Each application is reviewed to assure all pertinent information has been supplied before a site visit is arranged for siting the well. A site inspection must be performed for the purpose of siting a water well in order to assure that the well location will meet all applicable siting criteria. The normal time frame for issuance of a construction permit is two to three weeks from the date of receiving a complete application. A well sited on an emergency basis should be issued within three to five business days.
