Water Well Drilling Permitting
Arizona requires every well to be registered with the Arizona Department of Water Resources, known as the Well Registration Number (or Well Identification Number). Drilling a new well or modifying an existing well require permits that are issued to the driller and expire a year after it is issued. Once the well is drilled (or modified), the driller must file a Well Driller's Report with Arizona Department of Water Resources. If a well is not drilled in this timeframe, the permit expires and a new permit is required before drilling can commence.
Permits - Domestic wells on property parcels greater than 5 acres, as well as all commercial wells, only require a state permit from the Arizona Department of Water Resources and most can be applied for online the same day (there are some limitations on properties adjacent to State Lands and sites that may have been previously contaminated. These locations require a manual review by the State before a permit is issued). All other domestic wells to be drilled on property parcels less than five acres will require an additional permit review from the Mohave County Developmental Services Department and the processing time for this permit may take as long as 4 weeks. These permits are valid for one year.
