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 in 1980 (Executive Order 01.01.1980.04).
The Board consists of seven members who serve
two-year terms. They are appointed by the Gov-
ernor, with the advice of the Secretary of Health
and Mental Hygiene and with the advice and
consent of the Senate, One member represents the
Eastern Shore, one represents Central Maryland
and Baltimore City, one represents Southern
Maryland, and one represents Western Maryland.
The regional members must be licensed well drill-
ers, actively engaged 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 member represents the Department of
Natural Resources and one the Department of
Health and Mental Hygiene.

The Board administers the licensing program
for well drillers. It 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 condition-
ing installer; well driver; and well digger. The
Board is expressly vested with the power and au-
thority to make and enforce such rules and regu-
lations as are necessary to carry out its responsi-
bilities. The Board requires that all licensed
individuals meet statutory requirements of insur-
ance and bonding. The Board receives complaints
against well drillers, holds hearings, and may re-
voke or suspend licenses for violation of the
Board's rules and regulations. Any rule or regula-
tion concerning the drilling of wells proposed by
the Department of Health and Mental Hygiene
must be referred to the Board for comment (Code
Health Occupations Article, Title 21).
