Section 1. Definitions.Note 26
Section 2. Exemptions Due to Unusual Conditions.
Under certain circumstances the enforcing agency may waive compliance with these standards and prescribe alternate requirements. These standards may be waived only where they are impractical or ineffective because of unusual conditions, or would result in unsatisfactory condition or well function. In waiving any of these standards, the enforcing agency shall, if at all possible, require that measures be implemented to provide the same or greater level of water-quality protection that would otherwise be provided by these standards.
Section 3. Special Standards.
The enforcing agency may prescribe measures more stringent than standards described here, where needed to protect public safety or protect water quality.
Section 4. Responsible Parties.

Above-ground electrical facilities for cathodic protection wells should be installed by an appropriately licensed contractor.
