Well Drilling Regulations

The Real-Edwards Conservation and Reclamation District regulates groundwater from wells in these two counties.   Prior to any drilling, you must file an application with the District Office.  While many of the area water well drillers  have the application, you may download it from this website. It is best if you obtain it thru the District office.  This is done by calling (830) 232-5733 and asking for an application.  District personnel will be able to answer any questions you may have as well as inform you about certain specific requirements that could affect your ability to drill a well.

Well Applications / Registrations

Well Registration / Application Form
(use for application for new wells, or modification or replacement of existing well)

District staff will review the registration and make preliminary determination as to whether the well meets the exclusions/exceptions. If the preliminary rule is that the well is excluded/exempt, the registrant may begin drilling or modification upon receiving the approved registration. If the preliminary determination of the District is that the well is not excluded / exempt, then the registrant must file an application for an Operating Permit from the District before the well may be drilled, altered, or modified.


Registration of Existing Well Form

This form is to be used to register a well drilled in the District before January 1, 2002.  This form must be completed and returned to the District. A registration number will be issued for each well hereby registered after District personnel and the well owner have determined the location of the well.
