Bill History

Bill Summary:
Introduced by Rep. A. Ott (R-Forest Junction) on July 19, 2011. Under current law, the Department of Natural Resources (DNR) requires well drilling businesses to be registered, and individual well drillers to be licensed, in order to engage in certain ground excavation activities that are undertaken for the purpose of obtaining groundwater for human consumption. This bill expands the current law so that it also applies to businesses and individuals who engage in certain ground excavation activities undertaken for the purpose of a geothermal heat exchange system.
