A Water Well Drillers Bond is a financial guarantee to the state engineer and generally is a requirement of licensure
A licensed driller binds himself to pay the penal sum to the state engineer in the event of significant noncompliance with the Administrative Rules for Water Well Drillers.
Many factors can determine the bond amount, such as the driller's compliance history, the size or depth of the well, the resources to be recovered and the cost to decommission a well. The required bond amount varies, as does the type of license, permit or registration offered by each state
States that require bonds for licenses, permits or registration of well constructors, maintenance of wells or well repair, well drilling, water system contractors, pump installers and well inspectors include: Arkansas, California, Georgia, Idaho, Kentucky, Maryland, Minnesota, New Mexico, North Dakota, Ohio, Oregon, Washington and West Virginia. Other states may only require registration, a permit or a license and do not have a bond requirement.
Many states have an educational or apprentice program for well drillers and are often required to pass an exam for licensing. Well drillers may also have to carry liability insurance and pay an annual license, registration, or permit fee.
