General Well Owner Resources and Guidance

Texas Well Owners Network (TWON)
TWON delivers science-based information to help community members maintain their wells and water quality while also protecting public groundwater and aquifer resources. Explore their fact sheets page for a wide array of helpful information. 

Report a Dry Well

When a new well is drilled, drillers submit a well report that includes the well depth, construction, and date it was drilled. If you are looking for a well record, there are two online resources available to help you locate it. Visit this Texas Water Development Board page for instructions. 

Register a Well

Community members are encouraged to register their well with the District. This helps us have a more comprehensive record of wells throughout our territory. It also allows us to keep you updated on possible contaminations or new drilling permits in your area. Register your well here.

Test Well Water Samples

It’s important to understand and check the quality of water your well is producing. At minimum, it’s recommended to test wells annually for E. coli bacteria and nitrate-nitrogen. If your water suddenly has a change in taste or smell, test your water as soon as possible to help identify the cause of the change and how to resolve the issue. 

While the District hosts well water check ups annually, well owners can get their water tested at anytime at the following local labs:
