The Steps that should be taken to Construct a Permitted Ground Water Well

  • Murphy Well Drilling will come to your location and spot an area for the construction of your water well, adhering to State and Local guidelines.
  • We will mark your survey/plat where the well will be located and sign it.
  • You will take the signed survey to your local Environmental Health Department.  (See the bottom of this page for those Telephone Numbers.)
  • An Engineer from that Department will come out to your location and approve the selected well construction area.
  • Upon approval, the EHD will issue you a permit.
  • To expedite your well construction, call 811 and have your underground utilities marked. Otherwise, we will call and have them marked.  Allowing 48 hours for this process to be complete. 
  • Once you have your permit (if required) we will schedule a date to come out and begin the construction of your well.  Please note that our schedules sometimes change, due to weather or other reasons beyond our control.

 

  • We will drill your water well according to the guidelines set forth by the Georgia Water Well Commission. We will leave your area prepared for your pump installation.


  • Murphy Pump Service will be glad to assess your pump requirements based on the depth, casing, and yield of your well.

 

  • The Environmental Health Department requires the owner to protect their well construction with a protective slab, 4 inches thick, extending 2 feet out in all directions from casing.  Slope this slab away from the casing. Murphy Pump Service can complete this, for an additional fee.  You must call the EHD to come for a final as-built location inspection.  They will make sure that your water well is constructed properly, is protected properly (see Protecting your Well), and they will finalize your permitted water well construction.
