EXEMPT WELLS

The Texas Water Code Chapter 36 and the Rules of the Blanco-Pedernales Groundwater Conservation District provide that certain wells are exempted from the requirement of applying for a Well Operating Permit. In order to be exempted, the well must meet the following criteria:

  • The well must be used solely for either domestic purposes, watering of livestock, or for testing or monitoring as defined by District Rules. If the well is subsequently converted to any other use, then the well owner must make application for a Well Operating Permit, pay any applicable fees, and comply with any other provisions of District Rules.
  • The well must be equipped with a pump rated at a pumping capability of no more than 17.36 gallons per minute. Any well, regardless of use, that is equipped with a pump rated at more than 17.36 gallons per minute is considered by District Rule to be a High Volume Non-Exempt Well and must apply for and obtain a Well Operating Permit. The current application fee for a new High Volume Non-Exempt Well is $1,000.
  • The water produced from the well cannot be pumped into any ponds, lakes, tanks, reservoirs, swimming pools, or other surface impoundments for holding water. An exemption is made for ponds, lakes, tanks, reservoirs, swimming pools, or other surface impoundments for holding water that are used solely for domestic purposes or for livestock watering, but such impoundments are restricted to no more than 50,000 gallons of holding capacity.

 

Permit Application: This form is used for well operating permit and transport permit applications only and shall be filled out completely as possible. In accordance with the Texas Water Code, Chapter 36.113 and District Rules, a non-exempt well requires an operating permit issued by the District. Transport permits may be required under Chapter 36.122 and District Rule 3.4.

 

For Permit Applications: Please contact District.

 

 

Request for District Action: This form is used for lodging a complaint or reporting an alleged violation occurring within the Blanco County Groundwater District.
