The Board is established in Delaware’s Regulations for Licensing Water Well Contractors, Pump Installer Contractors, Well Drillers, Well Drivers, and Pump Installers (7 DE Admin. Code 7302).

The Board establishes and manages the procedures and guidelines for licensing professionals in the well drilling professions. It develops application forms and examinations, reviews applications, examines candidates, and recommends granting, renewal or denial of licenses as well as suspension or revocation of licenses.

Board Meetings

All meetings of the Water Well Licensing Board are posted on the DNREC Calendar of Events and on the Delaware Public Meeting Calendar.

Board Members

The board includes representatives from DNREC, the Delaware Geological Survey, and the regulated community. Four of the six members are to hold valid well driller, well driver or pump installer licenses.
