Well Registration

Wells Required to be Registered

  • All new wells must be approved and registered before construction begins.
  • All wells that have transferred ownership (e.g., property purchased with existing well) since April 1, 2012 are required to register with the District within 90 days of transfer.   There is no charge to register an exempt well that has transferred ownership.
  • All non-exempt wells are required to be registered with the District and equipped with a meter regardless of the date drilled.  

Please see our Frequently Asked Questions page to find out if your well is non-exempt or feel free to contact the District.


Existing exempt well owners are encouraged to register their wells with the District to help the District protect their groundwater.  There is no charge to register your exempt well that existed prior to April 1, 2012 (the date which all new wells were required to begin registering). The District can only protect wells that are registered with the District.

The District's well registration website is now available at http://registration.redrivergcd.org/wells. Please visit this site and create a login to begin registering your wells online. If you have any questions about this process, please feel free contact the District staff.  Wells can also be registered with the District by filling out the Well Registration Form, which is available for download here, and submitting it to the District by mail, fax or email. This form is also used to transfer the ownership of a well.
