2010 Legislature: Pump Installer Licensing

Representative Patrick Painter has introduced a bill that would require well pump installers to be licensed and regulated in the same way that well drillers are. The bill is numbered House Bill 226 (HB 226). The purpose of the bill is to prevent health risks that can occur when non-professionals install pumps onto wells without properly sanitizing the pumps, pipes, and well. A person who is installing a pump on their own well is not required to have a license, but is required to register with the State Engineer's office.
