Private Well Program


To protect and promote the health and safety of Rhode Islanders and our visitors, who drink water from a well.

What we do

  • License Private Well Samplers and Interpreters to assure accuracy of required testing results.
  • Train and provide guidance to professionals that work with Rhode Island private wells.
  • Work to ensure that required well testing is carried out as per regulation.
  • Educate the well-owning public as to what testing is recommended for routine maintenance of their well.
  • Team with other Rhode Island well and groundwater agencies and organizations to promote integrated regulations.
  • Collect, analyze, and share interpreted results of private well testing with the public.
