Private Wells
A source of potable water is required to obtain a building permit for a new house. A private well is used when a municipal or community water supply is not available. West Stockbridge has adopted well regulations in 1990 which address permitting, minimum setbacks, water quality and construction standards.  A permit from the Town is required to construct or decommission a well. All wells must be constructed by a Massachusetts registered well driller. A list of well drillers is available at:  List of Massachusetts Certified Well Drillers. The DEP web page for private wells Massachusetts Private Wells Information contains other information including a link to private well guidelines which are followed in West Stockbridge.
