Finding Information about Water Wells in Texas
Need to find a water-well report?
Gather as much information as possible, such as the original owner, date drilled, driller, depth, type and size of casing, etc.
The Texas Water Development Board (TWDB) has data on both private and public water wells. Water well reports can be viewed and printed via the TWDB Water Data Interactive (WDI).
The Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) scanned water well reports that were submitted by mail. The reports can be viewed and printed via the Water Well Report Viewer.
If your well is located within an underground water district, the district might have a copy of the well log. Our Groundwater Planning and Assessment Team coordinates the TCEQ programs for groundwater conservation districts.
Well Drilling and Plugging
The Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation (TDLR) regulates the licensed drillers of public water supply wells. For useful information about drilling and plugging water wells, contact the TDLR’s Water Well Drillers and Pump Installers Program .
Public Water Supply System data is available for download in GIS shapefile format via the Source Water Assessment Viewer.
For additional information on public water supply wells, contact the Drinking Water Protection team.
