Well Development Procedures


The Virginia Department of Health - Office of Drinking Water (ODW) has prepared a handbook to assist prospective or current public water supply owners with the development of new water supply wells. The handbook describes the procedures for selecting well sites, obtaining ODW approvals, and methods and materials required to construct a groundwater well source intended for potable water consumption. This document is not intended to be a comprehensive guide on drinking water wells, but it will provide a quick reference to state standards for developing of wells to serve public water supplies.

Handbook and Forms: Many of these files require the free Adobe Acrobat Readerdownlaod adobe reader.
