Individuals who have applied to the Water Resources Commission for a Water Well Contractor’s License are required to be bonded. In addition, individuals must pass the Water Well Constructor examination. Eligible applicants must be 18 years or older, submit a completed application and pay the $20 exam fee. The Water Supply, Well Constructor Exam Study Packet will provide information as well as the contractor application.

What is the purpose of the Bond?

The Oregon Water Well Contractors Bond will cover construction, alteration, conversion, or abandonment for each well under the bond.

A surety bond is an agreement between three parties. The principal, the obligee and the surety company. The principal, in this case, is the water well contractor and the obligee is the Water Resource Department. The surety bond acts as an assurance that the principal will conduct their business while following the rules and regulations of the state. If there is any loss incurred due to the negligence or violation of the bond, the surety company will issue a payout to the aggrieved party. The principal will then pay back the company in full.
