To ensure the integrity of water well construction and prevent potential pollution of state groundwaters, the OWRB supervises the licensing of water well drillers and pump installers. This program is guided by comprehensive standards developed in cooperation with the Well Drillers Advisory Council. Licensed drillers are required to submit well logs online or by mail within sixty days of the completion of a new well or plugging or reconditioning of an existing well.
Due to recent heavy rains, through July 25, 2019, the Oklahoma Department of Environmental Quality (ODEQ) is offering free bacteriological testing of private water wells that have been submerged in flood water. If your well has been submerged in flood water, the ODEQ recommends that you not drink the water until you have disinfected your well and a sample analysis has indicated that your water is safe. Instructions on how to disinfect your well are available here. For disinfection and sampling supplies, please contact the ODEQ at (800) 522-0206.
