The Environmental Health Division enforces State of Michigan regulations regarding the construction and use of drinking water supplies. The current Michigan Water Well Construction and Pump Installation Code (Part 127 of Public Act 368 of 1978, as amended) and administrative rules became effective on April 21, 1994. Any well drilled since this date is required to meet the minimum regulations defined by this code.
An inspection of a newly drilled water well is required by this office to assure code compliance. Water samples will also be collected and analyzed to assure safe drinking water. If you would like to sample your own water supply, please contact this office at (989) 743-2390 for more information.
