Drilling a new water well in Arizona requires following a specific set of steps.
Licensed Well Driller
Water well drilling must be performed by a contractor licensed by the Arizona <<licensing department>>.
water well construction standards
There are a few minimum well construction standards mandated by ADWR for domestic well construction (A.R.S. 45-594) and the initial reporting by the well driller. Water well drillers are licensed by the ADWR by A.R.S. 45-595 and they are required to submit only basic well construction information. There are no regulations, or standards of performance, or previous work experience requirements by the ADWR, however, for the well and pump contractors who equip and service private wells in Arizona. Maintaining well ownership, performance and equipping records with the ADWR is the sole responsibility of the registered well owner.
