Current Bill Summary

HCS/HB 250 - Water systems that serve charitable or benevolent organizations that do not regularly serve an average of 100 persons or more for at least 60 days of the year and that are not used for a school or day-care are exempt from well construction rules unless the system is a threat to groundwater or public health. Such wells are not exempt from certain rules applicable to multi-family wells. The act lists certain actions that a well owner must take in the event of certain coliform contamination violations.

No charitable or benevolent organization that is exempt from the well construction rules will be required to replace, change, upgrade, or alter any well if the well was constructed before August 28, 2011, unless the well poses a threat to groundwater or public health or has certain coliform contamination violations.
