Who Is Responsible for Well Maintenance Costs in California?

This can be a complex issue, but there can be several ongoing costs associated with a shared well. Initially, there is a cost to “witch” a well (to locate water and a good location to consider drilling). There are initially costs to drill a well, as well as permits to obtain and ideally legal agreements to be created. It is important that those who share the well, and the property owner where the well is to be located establish a clear understanding of how the well is to be used and maintained, and how associated costs will be borne.

In many cases these issues can become clouded, even between neighbors with the best intentions. It is important to maintain a well to protect the integrity of its walls, and to prevent it from filling with silt or sand. If a well becomes fouled, or if the water table drops over time it may be necessary to re-drill to access the aquifer below and maintain the integrity of the well. It may be necessary to maintain road access to and from the well, and it is important to maintain all permits associated with wells in California.
