Gillespie County Water Wells

The Hill Country Underground Conservation District “District” began registering new water wells drilled in late 1989 and in 1999 began issuing permits for permitted wells (i.e. commercial, irrigation, municipal) as well.

After the District was created District personnel contacted local drillers to get copies of the driller’s logs for Gillespie County that were drilled prior to the establishment of the District.  It is an on-going process locating these wells. The District is not in possession of all the driller’s log prior to the Districts creation as some driller were no longer in business or the drilling company was not from the surrounding area.  In addition, wells drilled prior to 1965 were not required to file driller’s log with the state.
