Water Well Records

Are you selling your property and can't find a copy of the well record? Here's information on well records and how to obtain a new copy.

Within two weeks of finishing your well, the well contractor must provide you with a copy of your water well record in the format prescribed by the Ministry of the Environment. Each well will have its own well record. Details include construction details, water yield test results, static water level and a geological log that describes the soil and/or bedrock conditions and geographic location.

If the well depth is changed, upgraded or plugged and sealed, the well record must be updated.

To obtain a copy of your well record you can order it from the Ministry of the Environment for a fee of $20. Call 1-888-396-9355. Well records are entered under the name of the original well owner.
