Every summer resident knows that there must be a well on the site. And even better - a well from which water will be pumped. But the depth of the wells is very different. Even those who have not yet delved into the issue deeply and in detail, should be aware of the strict state regulation of all issues related to subsoil resources. Water is no exception in this regard. So are there any restrictions on the depth of wells for summer residents, and what responsibility awaits them for violations of the law?
The relationship of a citizen with a land plot is regulated by several state legislative documents at once. Specifically, the relationship between a citizen and land resources is regulated by the Law "On Subsoil", as well as by a number of articles of the "Civil Code". For violation of the established rules, a person may incur administrative liability, expressed mainly in the form of fines.
In 2020, the law "On Subsoil" was amended and clarified amendments, according to which the owners of summer cottages can use in personal (non-commercial) needs water extracted from the sandy layer of the earth. As a rule, there is enough water in it to provide a dacha economy, but not enough for industrial needs. Therefore, a citizen has the right to use this water freely, provided that it is extracted from a well or well per day no more than 100 cubic meters of water.
Note: the volume of the tank of the Soviet milk tanker GAZ 53 is 4.2-4.8 cubic meters.
As for the depth limitation, then, according to the law, it is 30 meters both for the well and for the well. In all other situations, the owner of a summer cottage must apply to state authorities for permission. Any well over 30 meters will be considered artesian by law. If a citizen wants to trade in water, then he will need a legal entity and an appropriate license.
