Wells Permits

​

Industrial, irrigation, geothermal, and human consumption water wells in the City of Boston are regulated by the Boston Public Health Commission's Environmental Health Office.  A permit is required prior to the construction of a well and an annual use permit is required to operate the well.  Certain well types such as monitoring wells are exempt from the permit requirements.
