Groundwater Management Districts

GWMDs are created by order of the IDWR Director upon petition of water right holders diverting water from wells in an aquifer of concern. These districts are created “to provide for financing of repair or abandonment of wells in aquifers which have experienced or are experiencing declines in water level or water pressures because of flow, leakage, and waste from improper construction, maintenance, and operation of wells drilled into the aquifer.”
