The mission of the Colorado County Groundwater Conservation District is to evaluate, preserve, and protect the groundwater of Colorado County, to prevent waste, and to ensure an adequate supply for current and future residents, industry and agriculture.

                                         Time to renew your permit?

Please click on the Well Permitting tab to the right. If used for irrigation, be sure to include a map indicating the number of acres being irrigated for each of the permit years.

If dropping off forms, please note that our office has moved to 910 Milam Street, Columbus (next door to Country Time Home Studio).

Why is it important to register your water well?

Well registration assists the District in determining how much groundwater is being used and ultimately how much is available. Without an accurate accounting of the number of wells in the district, we may overestimate how much water we have available to us. A high water availability number would be attractive to outside water marketers who may wish to exploit this area’s groundwater resources.

By registering your water well, the District can ensure that new high-capacity wells are spaced far enough away so as not to adversely impact your well.

The district can provide notice and work with you in cases of groundwater contamination or pollution.

Since well drillers, pump installers and other maintenance providers are bound by District rules, they may choose not to work on your well if it is not registered with the District.

All wells must be registered PRIOR to drilling in order for us to determine if a permit will be required.
