Certificate of Water Availability:

This is to ensure that the well meets safety codes and is capable of delivering the necessary volume of water. See column to the right. Locating or Recreating a Water Well Report Fact Sheet

Well Site Supplemental Application - SA 020 To get approval to build a new well or connect to an existing well. For proposed new wells, SA 020 asks about site conditions and possible nearby contaminants. Once the well site has received approval, a single-family well can be drilled and tested by a licensed well driller; however, a two-party or Group B water system must submit a Water System Design application before drilling (SA 019 - below).
  
For existing wells, SA 020 asks about site conditions, well components and water-quality information. If the Permit Assistance Center finds the existing well to be adequate, the applicant may connect to it.

Protective and Restrictive Covenants - to protect drinking water from contamination from land uses
Forms Description Related Info.
The following forms are all on legal-sized paper:
  
Covenant Form - Public Water Source
  
Covenant Form - Non-Public Water Source
  
Restrictive Form -- Public Water Source
  
Restrictive Form -- Non-Public Water Source
A covenant is a recorded agreement that gives property owners the legal ability to control activities within a certain radius of their well that could affect their water quality. This "sanitary control area" is 100 feet for wells and 200 feet for springs. Use the regular covenant form if you, or your water supplier, own all or part of the land in the sanitary control zone; if a neighbor owns some of the land in the zone, you'll also need to get a restrictive covenant form from the landowner as well.
  
Non-Public = single family
Public = 2-party, Group B, Group A water systems
