You would be surprised (but deny it I'm sure) if you knew how much water treatment equipment I sell in MI. The difference between us is a lot more than a million dollars worth of equipment depending on a state license and my computer and phone.
Sure you are The Dollar Store, I am not. The house I am working on today has seven and 1/2 bathrooms, two hot tubs and a big irrigated lawn. We need 45/50 GPM. No problem, they are not worried about every dime, they want the service.

You may want to check that out with;
Michigan Dept. of Environmental Quality
Mike Gaber
Water Bureau DW & EH Section
PO Box 30273
Lansing, MI 48909-7773
517 241.1374
fax 517 241.1328
gaberm@michigan.gov

Mike told me that new dug wells are not allowed but, there are a number of existing dug wells in MI.

Mike says you're incorrect, you are only required to shock a well you just drilled or worked on and the testing is only for coliform bacteria and not potability of all things that would make water non potable.

I do not disagree however, the township this well was in has a "point of sale" rule. Nothing can be grandfather.

I do not owe you anything but, the fact is these small townships and many counties do not HAVE web sites.
