Water Well Report Viewer

The TCEQ Water Well Report Viewer ("Viewer") allows users to locate and view copies of water well reports. In this online application, users access the water well files through a grid layer overlain on a map of the state of Texas. When users click on their area of interest, the application will display a list of the water well files within the selected area. Each file contains copies of one or more water well reports.
