West Virginia 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.

WV Well Driller and Pump Installer Licenses Temporarily Extended

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the WV Well Drillers Conference and other events have been canceled where the majority of Certified Water Well Drillers and Pump Installers acquire their Continuing Education Hours (CEH;�s) required for license renewal. To provide additional time for the operators to acquire the required CEH�s, the Office of Environmental Health Services Certification and Training Program will be extending all operator licenses until July 31, 2021. The need for any additional extensions will be determined once the ramifications of the COVID-19 virus are known. There is no need for individual operators to request extensions.
