Well Registration


WELL REGISTRATION:All wells, including exempt wells, must be registered with or permitted by the District in order for the District to consider the effects of other permit applications on the well. Failure to register a well with the District or to obtain a permit for a well will result in the well not being considered when the decision to permit wells are made.
