For all well replacements, you need to complete a well site inspection application and obtain formal approval before you start construction. After we approve your well site, we’ll need the following items in order to approve your water supply:
- A copy of the water-well construction report (called a well log) from your well driller.
- A copy of the pump test that proves your well produces at least five gallons of water per minute per residential connection (usually performed by your well driller).
- A copy of a bacteria test proving there are no bacteria in the well water. This test must be conducted by a state-approved lab.
- A chemical analysis of your well water, showing the level of iron, manganese, nitrate, chloride, and conductivity (also known as the “Kitsap 5”). This test must be conducted by a state-approved lab.
- A copy of your private well system design worksheet, usually completed by your well driller.
- Depending on the well’s location, we may require that you and your neighbors sign an agreement to abide by covenants that protect the well’s water quality.
