Wells Program

The Environmental Health Department, in conjunction with the Arizona Department of Water Resources (ADWR), approves well sites for parcels that are five acres or less. Well sites are for new wells, wells to be deepened or repaired. At this time the Environmental Health Department cannot test your well for contamination. Please call ADEQ at 602-364-0720 to obtain a list of licensed labs in the area that can test your water.


The well application must include a site plan to show the required setbacks. Wells must be at least 5 feet from all property lines and at least 100 from all septic system components. An inspector will need to access your property to determine that the setbacks are met and take GPS readings of the well site.
