Waterwell Certification Program
To ensure the integrity of water well construction, and thus prevent
potential pollution of state groundwaters, this office supervises a
certification program of drillers and pump installers for water supply,
geothermal, commercial and industrial wells. The mission of the water
well certification program is to protect the health of West Virginia
citizens who rely on water wells for their drinking water source,
through implementation of the West Virginia Water Well Design Standards.
Protection of ground water resources and aquifers is accomplished by
assuring that water wells are constructed, modified, and abandoned in a
technically sound manner.
