Vermont licensed well drillers have been required to submit well completion reports (well logs) to the state since 1966. Well tags have been required since 1986.
Please note: data contained here is only as accurate as what was submitted - many wells were completed before reporting was required; many reports have missing information, were recorded inaccurately or poorly located geographically. In some cases, the builder is listed as the owner. If a report cannot be found but you know the driller of a particular well, you may want to contact them directly.
The Drinking Water and Groundwater Protection Division licenses well drillers constructing wells in the State of Vermont, in addition to, maintains a database of wells drilled and their locations.
