Business Answers About Licensed Facilities
On this page:
If you plan to have your own well, and serve water to the public (more than 25 people per day) for more than 60 days a year, your facility meets the definition of a public water system under the Safe Drinking Water Act. Restaurants that offer water, post-mix soda, or make their own ice are public water systems.
Your well must be approved, and you will need to conduct regular water quality testing to protect public health. You may download a well approval form from our web site. A Drinking Water Program field inspector will assist you in finding a location for your well.
If the well meets setback and water quality requirements, we may be able to approve its use as a public water system. You should consult with the Drinking Water Program at 287-2070.
