House Committee Sets Hearing On Water Well Standards Bill May 12

The House Consumer Affairs Committee is scheduled to hold a hearing on House Bill 48 (Godshall-R-Montgomery) setting drinking water well construction standards (sponsor summary) on May 12.
The bill requires the Department of Environmental Protection to adopt rules and regulations recommended by the National Groundwater Association to ensure drinking water is protected from contamination resulting from poorly constructed water wells.  
Rep. Godshall noted the legislation clearly prohibits the metering or otherwise taxing the use of private water wells.
The hearing will be held in Room B-31 in the Main Capitol in Harrisburg starting at 9:15 a.m.
Rep. Robert Godshall (R-Montgomery) serves as Majority Chair and Rep. Peter Daley (D-Washington) serves as Minority Chair of the Committee.
