A Well permit is required to ensure any well drilled in Montgomery County meets all current County and State standards relative to minimum setbacks associated with the protection of the health of all residents and the environment.
🆕 Please note that the following condition will be effective regarding building permit applications received on or after July 1, 2024:
When a Well permit is required to replace or relocate an existing well to obtain approval of a building permit application, the well must be drilled and any conditions of the Well permit met, prior to approval and issuance of the building permit.
