§ 5-65.2-1 Short title and purpose. [Effective January 1, 2017.].
This chapter shall be known and may be cited as the "Rhode Island Well-Drilling, Pump Installers, and Water-Filtration Contractors Licensing Law". The purpose of this chapter is to establish a licensing program and minimum standards for governing and enforcing the installation, construction, repair, development, and abandonment of wells, well pumps, water-supply systems, water-treatment systems, and water-filtration systems to ensure competency in the field and to safeguard the public health and to provide an adequate supply of clean and uncontaminated water for all persons in the state. Nothing in this chapter should be construed as relieving a public water-supply system of complying with relevant statutes or with the rules and regulations pertaining to the certification of public drinking-water-supply treatment and public-drinking-water supply transmission and distribution operators (R23-65-DWQ).
