  • Plugging an abandon well or cistern is eligible for reimbursement through the Grants to Counties Program. A property owner can receive up to $500.00 back from abandoning a well and up to $300 for a cistern. Well and cisterns need to be plugged by a certified contractor of by the property owner with county supervision. Grants to Counties also offers free water tests for private wells!
