Environmental Boards

The Environmental Boards are comprised of three State licensing boards, established by the General Assembly. Also located within the Water & Science Administration, the Boards were created to license and certify individuals as:

  • Superintendents and operators of waterworks, wastewater works, industrial wastewater works, wastewater collection systems and waste water distribution systems; and
  • Well drillers, water conditioner installers and water pump installers;
  • Marine Contractors 
  • Individuals providing any on-site wastewater disposal (septic) services

The Environmental Boards screen applicants wanting to enter the professions, administer competency examinations, evaluate continuing education as a prerequisite for license renewal, and take disciplinary action against those licensees found guilty of violating the law.
