Well registration provides the District with data needed to preserve and protect groundwater resources for current and future uses.  All wells drilled after April 1, 2011, must be registered – those exempt from permitting as well as those subject to permitting.  Exempt wells drilled prior to April 1, 2011, are encouraged to register at no cost so the District can protect that well with spacing regulations.

Wells exempt from metering and fee payment cannot produce more than 17.36 gpm, or are used solely for domestic, livestock, poultry, or agricultural purposes.  Wells subject to permitting can produce more than 17.36 gpm with the proper spacing, individually, or as a system, and are used for any purpose other than domestic, livestock, poultry, or agricultural use.
