  • Grout to land surface
  • Top of casing at least 12” above land surface
  • Half-inch access port and vent
  • Watertight pipe and electrical entry
  • Watertight well seal or cap
  • Downturned threadless sampling tap
  • Permanently attached Well Contractor ID Plate
  • Permanently attached Pump Installer ID Plate
