1501:9-1-05 Safety.

No well shall be drilled nearer than one hundred feet to any inhabited private dwelling house; nearer than one hundred feet from any public building which may be used as a place of resort, assembly, education, entertainment, lodging, trade, manufacture, repair, storage, traffic, or occupancy by the public; nearer than fifty feet to the traveled part of any public street, road, or highway; nearer than fifty feet to a railroad track; nor nearer than one hundred feet to any other well.

Rule 1501:9-1-05 of the Administrative Code does not apply to a building or structure which is incident to agricultural use of the land on which it is located, unless such building is used as a private dwelling house or in the business of retail trade. The chief may grant an exception reducing the requirement in this rule that no wellhead shall be placed nearer than one hundred feet to any other wellhead where an applicant demonstrates that the requested reduction in spacing between wellheads is necessary to reduce impact to the land surface or the owners of the affected land.
