Large Groundwater Withdrawal Permitting Program
In 1998, two state laws, the Groundwater Protection Act and the Safe Drinking Water Act, were amended to ensure that no unmitigated adverse impacts to water users or water-dependant natural resources occur as a result of a large groundwater withdrawal. Any withdrawal from groundwater of 57,600 gallons or more of water in any 24-hour period from a well or wells installed after July 1998 at a single property or place of business is considered to be a large groundwater withdrawal.
