The application period for Abandoned Well Plugging Grants is now open. To receive priority funding consideration, applications must be submitted by Dec. 31, 2023. Applications received between January 2024 through April 2024, may be awarded on a first-come, first-serve basis if available funds remain available.

Through this grant program, the department provides financial assistance to groundwater-based community and not-for-profit noncommunity public water systems to identify and properly plug abandoned drinking water wells according to state and federal regulations and requirements. Awards are limited to a maximum of $15,000 in grant funds. Plugging public water wells requires a cost-share of 25% for each well or in-kind match. No cost-share is required to plug private or multiple-family wells.
