What is a well application?

Posted: June 29th, 2022

A well application for exempt and non-exempt wells can be applied for and filed with the District on forms designated by the District, which can be found here.

District approval of a registration application may not automatically grant the registrant the authority to drill, complete, or operate a well under another governmental entity’s rules or regulations. The registrant should refer to the rules and regulations of other governmental entities with jurisdiction over the drilling and operation of water wells at the location specified on the District registration  application, including but not limited to, the county, the city, the Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation, and/or the TCEQ, where applicable, to determine whether there are any other requirements or prohibitions in addition to those of the District that apply to the drilling and operation of water wells.
