Abstract

Iowa regulations do allow well owners to plug their own wells, provided the well owner does the work. If another person is paid to do the work, that person must be a state-certified water well contractor. Regardless of whether the owner or a contractor plugs the well, Iowa law requires the well owner to certify (on DNR Form 542-1266 “Abandoned Well Plugging Record,”) that plugging was done according to state requirements. This report must include confirmation of the well plugging by your county's “designated agent” in charge of well plugging programs, or by a state-certified water well contractor.
