The well sealing program is available to anyone who resides within Cass County who whishes to seal water wells that are no longer functional.
The program will be guided with technical assistance provided by the Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) and with financial assistance from the Cass County Soil Conservation District.
The current program is run by the Soil Conservation District and funded through the district itself. This program provides 75% of the producers approved cost of the sealing process with payment not to exceed $800.00.
In order to be eligible for the cost share program, the Cass County Soil Conservation District must have approved the application, design and completed an inspection of the well site both prior to and after the sealing process.  Two cost estimates must also be provided to the District before approval.  A picture will be taken prior to sealing and again after sealing to ensure the sealing process was completed in accordance to the program specifications.  No work should be started until the application and contract have been approved. 
It is the landowner’s responsibility to make all arrangements with the sealing company to have the well sealed.  The districts responsibilty is to ensure the well was sealed to specifications and pay the resident the amount agreed to in the contract.
