New Hampshire DES recently proposed rules that would create a reduced license fee for workers employed by a licensed water well contractor or pump installer, and who choose to be individually licensed.
The existing rules establish license fees for water well contractors and pump installers. The existing rules implement the requirements for licensure of water well contractors and pump installers, including:
- Types of licenses
- Application procedure
- Procedures for hearings
The rules also establish standards for the construction of wells, the installation of pumps and pumping systems, and reporting requirements.
The proposed rule would allow individual licensees to pay reduced fees. Currently, water well and pump industry workers employed by a licensed water well contractor or pump installer who choose to be individually licensed are required to pay the same license fee as their employers. The proposed rule would create reduced license fees for such individuals.
The new fees for individuals would be 2 percent to 6 percent lower than the business license fees, depending on the license category.
