Well Permits

Apply

Generally, anyone wanting to construct a new or replacement well in the District designed to pump more than 50 gallons per minute must obtain approval from the NRD before they begin construction. There are exceptions and our well permitting process is designed to make sure prospective well owners get us all of the information we need to consider their proposal.

The process you follow to obtain a well permit depends on both the location and size of the proposed well. Requirements associated with these factors not only help us learn more about how to preserve and protect ground water; they also help protect existing well owners. Contact our ground water staff with any questions.
