Water wells that produce less than 17.5 gpm do not require a permit from HPWD. However, these wells may be registered with HPWD, which has several advantages:Well spacing example
- Your well site is protected by a minimum of 100 yards from newly permitted water wells.
- A record of your water well helps establish a relationship with HPWD. We can provide services for your benefit, such as water level measurements, flow tests, and basic water quality screening.
