Groundwater Management

The District manages the groundwater resourecs within its jurisdiction through the registration of water wells and permitting of groundwater production amd groundwater transfer in a sustainable manner that will conserve, preserve, and protect groundwater within its jurisdiction as well as prevent waste and protect the rights of owners of interests in groundwater.
