Water Well Standards Forms

The Water Well Standards Act (12-5-120 thru 138) provides standards for the siting, construction, operation, maintenance, and abandonment of wells and boreholes to protect public health and water resources of the State. The Water Well Standards Advisory Council (Council), appointed by the Governor, is responsible for implementing the requirements of the Act, including the licensing of water well drillers, the certification of pump installers, the investigation of complaints, the collection of fees, and the application of penalties and fines.

The Georgia Environmental Protection Division (EPD) serves as Agent for the Council, and supports the Council by examining applications, issuing licenses and certifications, performing practical drilling examinations, and conducting investigations of complaints, and other duties following approval by the Council. EPD also maintains listings of active licensed water well drillers and active certified pump installers.
