We want to dig a well in our garden, does anyone know if we we need any permission from any authorities. Thanks Frank


"We have water about 5-7 metres under our garden, so we intend digging the old fashioned way, buckets and spades"   I hope you know how difficult and dangerous a self-dig well would be - hopefully you are experienced in such undertakings - there are extreme safety risks from the collapse of excavations, possible gas/breathing problems, drowning [if you ever get deep enough], etc etc etc I'd be amazed if any designer/geometra/Engineer would touch such a proposal with the proverbial 10 foot barge pole. It would be interesting is you would give us feed back the comune's response to your proposal.
