Well Abandonment

Unused wells can be a safety hazard and a conduit for groundwater contamination and should be properly abandoned. The state well code contains requirements for properly filling and abandoning unused wells. You can get additional information from local well drillers or DNR Drinking Water specialists.

Cost-share assistance (up to 50%) may be available to abandon any unused well within agricultual areas in Brown County. Contact the Land and Water Conservation Department or complete a request for cost-share assistance application and submit it to our office.
