You will need this licence if you intend to construct, alter, deepen or conduct any other works on a well.
For the purposes of this licence, a well is an opening in the ground used to obtain access to underground water, classified as either artesian or non-artesian:
- Artesian wells are wells from which water flows naturally to the surface without any pumping. You will need a licence for all works on wells of this type.
- Non-artesian wells are wells from which water does not flow naturally and instead is raised by pumping or some other artificial means. A licence is only needed for wells of this type in locations proclaimed 'groundwater areas' by the agency.
