Water well and drilling contractors must post a $30,000 surety bond before they can become licensed and registered. These bonds expire June 30 on a two-year term, which means that the exact term of the bond may be longer or shorter than two years depending on the bond’s effective date. A surety underwriter must examine the bond application, personal and financial credit history, and take into account the bond’s term when determining whether and at what premium a bond can be issued.
