Well Plugging

Plugging of Abandoned Wells

Please visit the Iowa Department of Natural Resources for more information regarding the plugging of abandoned or no longer used wells.  Click here for the Iowa DNR site.

Click here for an informational brochure on well plugging.

Cost share assistance may be available for plugging wells. There is a grant program that may provide cost share reimbursement to help pay some of the cost associated with plugging your abandoned water supply well(s). The Grants-to-Counties Program is a program funded by the Groundwater Protection Act and administered by the Iowa Department of Public Health. All qualifying well services funded by the Grants-to-Counties cost share program must be approved by the county before any well services are initiated and the plugging work must be performed by an Iowa DNR Certified Well Contractor. You can contact your local county environmental health office for additional information.
