State law requires that a well must be sealed by a licensed well contractor or a licensed well sealing contractor (Minnesota Statutes, section 1031.301)

 

The sealing process starts with removal of the pump, the inner pipe to the pump, and any materials or obstructions in the well. A grout "tremie" pipe is then installed to the bottom of the well and the contractor pumps in the grout, usually consisting of a special cement or a special clay. In certain cases, the contractor may have to remove or perforate the well casing(s) before pumping the grout to ensure a proper sealing. After sealing the well, the contractor sends a "Well and Boring Sealing Record" to the MDH.
