In addition to the resources mentioned above, we provide information to landowners who are considering drilling a well, maintaining a well or permanently closing an old well (to be closed). We also provide educational resources for property owners wishing to drill a new well, maintain a well or close an unused well (to be closed). We regulate the construction of wells to ensure safe drinking water, protect water resources and create minimum standards for the drilling industry. Our work implies that wells and landowners have a responsibility to ensure legal and safe access to groundwater. Water is not a property right in Washington State. There are many competing uses of water; Some parts of the state may not have enough water available for new wells or may be closed for future withdrawals. We license and regulate well drills and provide continuing education resources. Important information for private well water owners – Learn how to test your well water. Well Construction Manual – Learn more about the steps to legally drill a well on your property. Well closure – Landowners must work with licensed drilling to decommission abandoned wells (close-up).
This is especially important when the well poses a threat to the environment, safety or public health. The Washington State Well Report (Journal) Viewer allows you to search and view detailed records of the construction and basement properties of individual drill wells. Well reports also contain information about the location, the name of the owner, the name of the drill, and the amount of water produced by a well.
