If public water supply is made available to a dwelling with a well, a well contractor should apply and pay for a Lake County Health Department water well sealing application. The Lake County Health Department should be contacted a minimum of 24 hours prior to the sealing of the water well. A representative from the department will verify the sealing of the water well. The old well should be sealed within 30 days of the dwelling being connected to the municipal supply.
If one desires to maintain and use their well as a non-potable water supply for outdoor watering, you must contact the Lake County Health Department to schedule an inspection to determine if your well is in compliance. Once the well has been determined to be in compliance the well will be required to be registered as a “Supplemental Irrigation Well” at the Lake County Recorder of Deed’s Office for a fee.
