Florida Ground Water Contractors Conservation Board started this petition to Florida ground water association and

We as a community need to join together and petition for stricter regulations on direct access to our groundwater resource...

As of now there are no regulations on who can remove a sanitary seal and access a water well in the state of Florida essentially opening a direct mainline to the blood of every existing life on our planet... 

Would you go to the hospital and be okay with the janitor taking your blood??? No you want someone who has had the training and education to do so for your health and the person drawing the blood...

Essentially this is what we have come to As a licensed water well contractor I am required to maintain my license by continuing education while being held to a higher standard subject to points and fines against my license in order to protect our resource for future generations 

Yet any individual can remove a seal from a well pour whatever chemical they choose right down into your drinking water...

Within my comparatively short career to most individuals working in the water well industry of fifteen years I have seen numerous contaminations by uneducated and unlicensed individuals such as muriatic acid, vegetable oil, transmission fluid and Dawn dish soap for example... 

I and many others propose we require a pump pullers license in order to remove the seal from any well or direct access point to our groundwater resource...

Florida is one of less than ten states in the country that does not require a license to access a water well...

I will provide a link to The National Ground Water Association showing the states that require a pump pullers license

In conclusion...

I would like to thank you for your time and consideration please spread the word to your friends, family and neighbors it's time we take the initiative sign this petition and stop this before it gets out of hand...
