Current Nebraska laws require that all water wells be registered with the Nebraska Department of Natural Resources (NDNR). Exceptions to the law include test holes in existence for 10 days or less, dewatering wells with intended use of 90 days or less, and domestic/livestock wells completed prior to Sept. 9, 1993.
Water well contractors are responsible for filling the well registration information for newly constructed water wells with NDNR within 60 days of well completion. Well owners are responsible for registering existing wells that have not been previously registered with NDNR. Registration forms and information are available at DNR's offices and on their website. Failure to register water wells is a Class IV misdemeanor under Nebraska law. If you have any questions about well registrations, contact NDNR's main office at: 1-402-999-9999 or any of the five field offices.
