Please contact the Fishers Health Department by email or by phone at 317-567-5045 for questions.

Well Samples

The Fishers Health Department recommends certified laboratories be used for well water testing. For a list of Indiana Certified Drinking Water Laboratories, visit the Indiana State Health Department. (The Fishers Health Department does not endorse any laboratories and this list is an information tool. Water samples from certified laboratories not listed are accepted by the Fishers Health Department.)

Well Chlorination

Water samples occasionally return unsatisfactory and may require additional disinfection. See IDEM well disinfection procedures.

Abandoned Wells

Wells that are abandoned are also required to submit an IDNR abandonment log, which is recorded to the well permit and related parcel. The Department of Natural Resources promulgated Rule 310 IAC 16-10-1 to provide guidance to the public in dealing with unused wells and proper abandonment. Please call DNR if you have questions about proper well abandonment.
