I can't find the well completion report I am looking for... It is possible the legal description of the well provided to DENR is either incorrect or difficult to read or we made an honest mistake when entering the log into our database.  However, it may be that we never received a well completion report -- especially for older wells.  Prior to 1975 well drillers were not required to submit completion reports.  Even so, we do have many completion reports for wells much older than 1975. 

I found a mistake in a well completion report... If you do find a mistake or some other correction is needed, please contact the Water Rights Program at (605) 773-3352 or send an email and we will fix it.

I found the well completion report but I have a question... If you have a question about whether the well described on the completion report complies with the Well Construction Standards, then please contact the Water Rights program at (605) 773-3352 or email us. General questions about the well construction should be directed to the well driller listed on the report.

I am having problems getting the search to work... Please contact Ron Duvall at (605) 773-3352 or by email if the search is not working properly.  If using a web browser, such as Firefox or Chrome, you may want to try the search using Microsoft Internet Explorer.
