The Maryland State Board of Well Drillers was
created by Chapter 584, Acts of 1968, and trans-
ferred to the Department of Health and Mental
Hygiene by Executive Order 01.01.1980.04. The
Board consists of seven members appointed by
the Governor, with the advice of the Secretary of
Health and Mental Hygiene and with the advice
and consent of the Senate for two-year terms.
One member represents the Eastern Shore, one
represents Central Maryland and Baltimore City,
one represents Southern Maryland, and one rep-
resents Western Maryland. The regional members
must be licensed well drillers and be actively en-
gaged in the well drilling business in the State at
the time of their appointment. Of the remaining
three members, one must represent the public at
large and be chairperson of the Board. One mem-
ber represents the Department of Natural Re-
sources and one the Department of Health and

The Board administers the licensing program
and issues licenses to the following categories of
well drillers: Master well driller, journeyman well

driller; apprentice well driller, classes A and B;
pump installer; water conditioning installer; well
driver; and well digger. The Board is expressly
vested with the power and authority to make and
enforce such rules and regulations as are neces-
sary to carry out its responsibilities. The Board
requires that all licensed individuals meet the
statutory requirements of insurance and bonding.
The Board receives complaints against well drill-
ers, holds hearings, and may revoke or suspend
licenses for violation of the Board's rules and reg-
ulations. Any rule or regulation concerning the
drilling of wells proposed by the Department of
Health and Mental Hygiene must be referred to
the Board for comment (Natural Resources Arti-
cle, secs. 8-607 through 613).
