The board includes representatives from DNREC, the Delaware Geological Survey, and the regulated community. Four of the six members are to hold valid well driller, well driver or pump installer licenses.

The Board establishes and manages the procedures and guidelines for licensing professionals in the well drilling professions. It develops application forms and examinations, reviews applications, examines candidates, and recommends granting, renewal or denial of licenses as well as suspension or revocation of licenses.
