Some facts on groundwater licensing:
There has been considerable alarm and a lot of confusion related to the new laws around the licensing of groundwater. The fact that well owners are uncertain about how the regulations and fees will affect them is not surprising, since from my own experience the government agencies are still trying to sort it out themselves.
For those who are affected and/or interested, I will try to provide some info and perhaps some rationale.
