Water Wells & Water Testing

The Boone County Health Department conducts water well permitting and sampling activities. A permit is required for the installation of a water well.

To have a water well driller, you must use a Certified Water Well Driller.

Applications are submitted to Boone County Health Department with subsequent site visits conducted by the Sanitarian. Should the site comply with the Water Well Regulation requirements, a permit is issued. Final inspections of the completed well installation are conducted when BCHD is notified or when BCHD receives the Water Well Completion Report from the driller.

The Boone County Health Department also conducts bacteriological sampling on wells that are in compliance with the State of WV Water Well Design Standards. 

Contact the BCHD office for any questions/concerns.
