Owners of irrigation wells need to check their records to make sure their wells are properly registered with the Department of Water Resources as state law requires. Records should also be checked for correct legal description and current ownership. Most people don't think about updating the registration for irrigation wells when ownership of land is transferred. It is important to keep all files up to date.

Properly registered wells are very important as the NRD requires permits for new well construction. Any unregistered or improperly registered well could become an illegal well and thus be shut down. Please make sure your well is properly registered so that we can avoid other possible disputes in the future.

The Lower Big Blue NRD has a complete well registration database and would be glad to help well owners check their well status. Should your well need to be updated it only takes a few minutes to fill out the proper paper work, and it costs NOTHING!!
