Zone 7's Groundwater Protection Ordinance requires that any planned new well, soil boring, or well destruction must be permitted by Zone 7 before starting the work. There is currently no fee for these permits. Additionally, a signed statement of future intent must be filed with Zone 7 for all unused or abandoned wells that are not destroyed. Permits must be received by Zone 7 at least 5 days prior to beginning any drilling.
