Smile Poulsbo Well-Drilling Company Fined by State


Kitsap Sun staff

Missed or late reporting about well-drilling activity may cost Duckworth Pump and Well Drilling of Poulsbo $15,000, according to the state Department of Ecology.
Ecology announced the fine Wednesday, alleging the company failed, or was late, in reporting wells it drilled or decommissioned in Kitsap, Jefferson and Mason counties between 1993 and 2009. The work spanned 30 jobs, Ecology reported.
In March, the company responded with the missing information, which the state is reviewing. Duckworth can appeal to the state Pollution Control Hearings Board.
Ecology said it issued written and verbal warnings, and in 2003 suspended the owner's license for six month and levied a $6,800 fine.
"Reporting is a basic part of every Washington well driller's business," said Bill Lum, who coordinates Ecology's well construction and licensing program. "The state relies on these reports for public information on size, location, depth, water level and date of wells everywhere in the state. And customers rely on them for assurance of a legal water supply."
