Well Permits & Information

Approximately 20,000 new permits to drill wells in New Jersey are issued and tracked per year. Once a well is constructed, the driller is required to submit a well record document which is the as-built description of the well. Well drillers also submit a well abandonment report whenever a well has been decommissioned. There are about 800 licensed well drillers and 400 licensed pump installers in New Jersey; only properly licensed individuals are permitted to install, service and decommission wells and pumps. The Subsurface and Percolating Water Act establishes the State Well Drillers and Pump Installers Examining and Advisory Board, whose members provide advice to the Department on exam questions, license status and technical issues. All meetings of the Board are open to the public.
