Proposed Amendments to the Wells Regulation

The Ministry of the Environment, Conservation and Parks is seeking public input on proposed updates to the Wells Regulation (Regulation 903) under the Ontario Water Resources Act to reduce administrative burden on the well construction industry, while maintaining protections for the environment, human health and public safety, and consumers.

The proposed amendments would:

  • modify minimum insurance requirements for licensed well contractors to match insurance policies available in the marketplace;
  • update well casing standards; and
  • allow placement of shallow well screens for test holes and dewatering wells.

To comment on the proposal, and for further details on the proposed amendments, please visit the Environmental Registry website at  Comments will be accepted until November 27, 2019.
