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.
For information on how many wells are currently registered in the District click here.
Wells can 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.
