When must a permitted well or soil boring be closed?

Permitted wells and temporary borings must be closed according to conditions of the permit granted.

  • Some monitoring wells will be used long-term and will be permitted accordingly.
  • Inactive monitoring wells that are not used within a year’s time should be closed.
  • Soil borings and temporary wells should be closed upon completion of work and according to a registered engineer or geologist’s approved work plan.
