Domestic Well Registration

Registering your domestic well creates a record of your water use, which helps to ensure that your use is considered in decision making and during times of water scarcity.

Domestic Well Registration Process

Complete a well registration form (PDF) and email it to Groundwater@gov.bc.ca or mail to the address provided.

Before Submitting:

  • Ensure your well is used for domestic purposes only.
  • Complete all required information.
  • Attach a sketch or map depicting where the well is located on the property.
  • Provide any supporting documentation (e.g., well construction report) if available.
  • Sign the well registration form.

Multiple submissions for the same domestic well will impede effective processing of the well registration.
