Finding Information about Water Wells in Texas

Links to resources that can help you locate information on public and private water wells.

Need to find a water-well report?

Step One:

Gather as much information as possible, such as the original owner, date drilled, driller, depth, type and size of casing, etc.

Step Two:

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)

Step Three:

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.

Step Four:

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  .
