Pennsylvania Licensed Water Well Drillers
Pennsylvania law requires water well drillers to obtain a license from the DCNR Bureau of Topographic and Geologic Survey. The Pennsylvania Licensed Water Well Drillers database lists drillers that have a license.
A license does not imply that a driller has knowledge of proper drilling or well construction practice. In Pennsylvania, there are no statewide construction or siting standards for private water wells. Some municipalities, however, do have standards.
The National Groundwater Association provides voluntary certification of well drillers. A lack of certification does not indicate an inability to properly construct a water well. The Pennsylvania Geological Survey does not endorse drillers based on this certification.
Ultimately, across the state, protection and maintenance of a private well is the responsibility of the homeowner. Private wells are typically safe, dependable sources of water if sited wisely and constructed properly.
