Upgraded Well Permit Tags

New, Improved, QR Coded Well Permit Tags

Well Tags need to last outside in harsh environments year-round to make sure wells are properly identified. The old DNREC Well Permit Tag featured on top is plain aluminum and is stamped. The Well Permit Tag on the bottom is UV Stable Black Aluminum. On this tag, we use a laser to etch the text, which creates a highly visible white text on the black background, which won’t fade away. The new UV Stable Black Aluminum tag has a QR Code on the tag. This allows anyone with a smartphone to scan the QR Code and go to the Department of Natural Resources’ website.

Every well is required to have a Well Tag (in most states), to ensure a clean and adequate supply of underground drinking water. There are programs in place to prevent contamination of aquifers from improper well construction, drilling, or abandonment. Before drilling, a licensed well driller must first obtain a permit. The unique ID number on the Well Tag makes obtaining important information about the well easier.

Our Well Permit Tags are customizable in shape, material, and layout, so you can get the exact identification you need. We offer custom slot sizes for your tags so you can strap these tags onto the well. Available slot sizes are 1/8″ X 9/16″ (for 1/2″ strapping), 1/4″ X 7/8″ (for 3/4″ strapping) and 1/4″ X 1-1/8″ (for 1″ strapping). Click here to view more samples of Well Permit Tags.

What do turtles and boats have in common?

They both wear tags!

This week (May 18th – 24th)  is National Safe Boating Week and Tomorrow, May 23rd is World Turtle Day. We are celebrating both holidays today with our HIN Tags and Sea Turtle Tags.

National Safe Boating Week is a program of the National Safe Boating Council to promote boating and life jacket safety. This campaign kicks off the weekend before Memorial Day when a lot of people will take to the water. Before you dust off those water skis this Memorial Day, also take the time to make sure your HIN (Hull Identification Number) Tag is up to date on your boat! HIN Tags are required by the Coast Guard, and our stainless steel HIN Tags will keep you up to date.

Environmental Management Tags

Did you know, National Band & Tag can assist environmental agencies, consulting firms, and other environmental services? Current environmental customers of ours are usually working to help protect the environment by helping companies and municipalities meet National Environmental Protection Act (NEPA) requirements.

Some of the solutions our customers offer are permitting for projects with impact on wetlands, solutions for infrastructure of urban water planning, storm water solutions to address issues of a single outfall or throughout an entire watershed, environmental assessments, testing of air, drinking water, waste water, and more.

Tree Tags – Environmental customers use tree tags to label trees that are for stormwater, should not be cut down, or to ID ownership. An urban forest management plan gives public works agencies detailed information, recommendations, and resources needed to effectively and proactively manage public trees. Urban forest management may use tree tags like the picture below to ID public trees.

Well Permit Tags – Environmental customers may offer permitting services and help municipalities with permits such as well permit tags. When groundwater wells, inject wells, drilled wells, and other types of wells aren’t properly managed or permitted, local groundwater can be affected.
