Statewide Permit

A well construction permit is required for any well that is constructed in the state of Maryland and before installing any well that will explore for water, obtain or monitor ground water, or inject water into any underground formation from which ground water may be produced.

To ensure a clean and adequate supply of underground drinking water, the state carries out programs to prevent contamination of aquifers from improper well construction and well abandonment.  The well construction permit is obtained by the well driller from the local health department.
