Wellhead Phase II Resources


Background, Deadlines, and Submittal Forms


Phase I of the Wellhead Protection Rule was creation and approval of a Wellhead Protection Plan. Phase II is an update of that plan. IDEM will notify you by letter two years in advance of your Phase II submittal deadline, which is based on community size and when Phase I was approved. The Phase II submittal needs to document any changes to your Wellhead Plan as well as parts of the plan that have been implemented. In most cases, completing the Phase II can be completed by a system. The Alliance’s Source Water Specialists are available to answer questions and assist as schedules allow. Find the Phase II submittal form here.
