Natra-l Resources under part J-I. of Chapter 373, Florida Stattes,. ,

Districts upon delegation by, the Department, an:,fo.laing, implementation

by the Water Management Districts established by Chapter. 373, Florida

Statutes.

*,art- II of these. rules and regulations establishes minimum water well

construction standards designed tocontrpl, conserve and p~ptect the ground

water resources of the State. These minimum water ,wea. construction stan-

dards shal. beco~l~ eeffecti~. on Septek er 3a., 1974 pd shall be administered

mulgated by local permitting authorities or other state

agencies, those standards shall apply.

(2) Prior permission shall be obtained from the Department and the

appropriate Water Management District for construction of wells

intended to be used for artificial recharge of ground water, or

for the intentional introduction'of water into any underground

() 'PdlWyvinyl Chloride (PVC) -pipe ray ~b'e used f6o well casing or

liner pipe. Any PVC pipe1 used to construct a water@ well shall

have been marked by the manufacturer, under a method specified

by the National Sanitation Foundation, Ann Arbor, Michigan, as

suitable for use in potable water systems. A-ny PVC pipe used

for well construction or repair shall be ASA Schedule 40 pipe

or stronger classification.

(e) Steel well casing and liner pipe may be joined in a watertight

tanier by threaded cou6lings or by electrical welding methods. '

PVC pipe shall be joined by solvent bonded couplings.

(f) Nonmetallic and stainless steel well casing or liner pipe shall

not be installed by driving. For well casing or liner pipe

installed by driving, the casing or pipe shall not butt together

inside threaded couplings unless the joint is electrically welded

so as to be completely watertight. A drive shoe is required for

use on casing or pipe installed by driving.

(2) Well Construction Methods:

(a) For wells obtaining water from unconsolidated earth materials,

"easing shall-ex'tehd from land surface to the well screen. Vhe'I,

well screen shall be attached to the casing with a water tight

seal.

(b) For wells obtaining water from consolidated earth materials,

a continuous casing shall extend from land surface to the top

of the uppermost consolidated unit of earth material. Provided,

however, that the bottom end of the well casing must extend to

'or below the watet level of: the aquifer intended -to Supply eaterl

to the well. :In addition, all caving zones be w the upper i..-

most consolidated unit shall be cased.-






Page Thirteen

(c) :rPrevention of Interchange of Water ;and Loss of Artesian

Pressure

In areas wheke, as- a result of the constructionn of a well,

an interchange of water between water bearing zones may

occur and may result in deterioration of the quality of

water in one or more water bearing zones, or will result in

a loss of artesiarr. pressure; such interchange shall be pre-

vented through the proper design and construction of the

well. If a well cannot be properly completed to prevent such

an unauthorized interchange 'of water between water bearing

zones or to prevent a loss of artesian pressure, the well

shall be abandoned and plugged in accordance with these rules

and regulations or other directions from the Permitting

Authority, as may be appropriate f6r the geological conditions

encountered.

(d) Grouting and Sealing

Casing for wells which obtain their water from a rock layer or

other such consolidated formation shall, as a minimum, be seated,

or sealed with neat cement grout, into that rock layer or other

consolidated formation.


For wells ith casing,, which is driven starting at land surface

and thence to its final depth in a bore ole equal to or smaller

in diameter than the outside diameter of the casing, or which is

driven .starting at land surface and thence to ite fital depth

ahead of the drill bit, an attempt to cement grout the entire

length of the casing need not be made.


For any part of a well casing with an outside diameter or four

(4) inches or larger intended to be installed in a bore hole






Page Fourteen

which is larger- in diameter than the outside diameter of the

casing, the annular space created between the well casing and

the bore:hole wall :shall be filled .from bottom to top with not

.ess than a two (2): inch thicrkness of neat cement grout. For

those well casings with an outside diameter of less than four

i(4) inches the,minimum grout thickness shall be. one- 1) inch.

The casing shall be centered in. the bore- hole prior to- grouting.

In those~ cases where, during grouting operations, circulation of

S the grout is lost so that the annular space being grouted cannot

be filled in one continuous operation, a tremie pipe shall be

installed in the annular space to a point immediately above the

zone of lost circulation and the annulus shall be bridged at that

point by sand or other, approved"material introduced through the

pipe. Grouting of the annular space. shall be completed using the

pipe or other approved methods.


Any District may grant individual exceptions or, with the concurrence of

the Department, may exempt any areas of that District from the requirements

of cement grouting the annular space between the well casing and bore hole

wall of that part of a well which penetrates an unconsolidated formation.

Provided, however, that the unconsolidated formation material must be of such

a caving nature that upon stopping the circulation of, drilling fluid through

the well, the aquifer material will immediately cave into and fill up the

annular spaoe between the well casing and bore' hole wall. -It is further

provided that a flow -space shall not be created by such construction that will

allow any movement Gof waters, along the outside of the well casing.which did not

naturally occur prior to construction of the well.: Except as provided above,

grouting and sealing of water wells shall be accomplished by the practices

and methods recommended by Section Al-8.4 of AWWA A100-66, AWWA Standard for

Deep Wells, American Water Works Association, Inc.






Page Fifteen


(3) Top ofthe Well

(a) Well Covers

Whenever there is an interruption in work on the well, such

as overnight shutdown, the well opening shall be sealed with

a substantial cover.


Except for those areas of a District designated by the

Department with the concurrence of the Permitting ; utorty,

any well in which pumping equipment is installed seasonally

or periodically shall, whenever pumping equipnaet .s not

installed, be capped with steel or reinforced concrete cover,

or valve.


Any cased well equipped with permanently installed pumping

equipment shall have that pumping equipment and any necessary

piping, installed through a well seal.


Any unused well shall be capped in a watertight manner with

a steel or reinforced concrete cover or valve.


Any well vent shall extend to at least one (1) foot above any

known flood level, but not less than two (2) feet above land

surface at the well.



(b) Flowing Wells

If the well flows at land surface, control shall be provided

by valved pipe connections, watertight pump connections, or

receiving reservoirs set at an altitude corresponding to the

artesian head.

(4) Plugging

All abandoned wells shall be plugged by filling them from bottom

to top with neat cement grout, unless otherwise provided in writing


_____ __~_~_1_______ ~

by the Permitting Authority or the Department. The plugging shall

be to restore or improve the hydrologic conditions whith existed

before the well .. w cotructed. j
